Welcome back to the Selly Oak Neighbourhood weekly blog!
Thank you for taking an interest in what we have been getting up to this week.
As you are probably aware, Bournbrook is quiet at the moment with the students being on study leave for the Easter holidays. High visibility patrols have continued around the area which has resulted in no burglaries or robberies in Bournbrook. We are aware that the University’s library is open 24 hours a day, days a week, so we take that into consideration when out on patrol.
On Tuesday, 8th April, Two Selly Oak Neighbourhood officers attended a Multi-Agency Safeguarding Day at Tally Ho Training Centre. They were given inputs on counterterrorism, child sexual exploitation, hoarders, female genital mutilation, domestic violence and human trafficking. There was representation from numerous partnership agencies including: Birmingham City Council Safer Community Group, NHS, the West Midlands Fire Service, Birmingham and Solihull Woman’s Aid, Aquarius, Addaction, BRAVE, Phoenix Futures – B-Chilled and Victim Support. This was a very constructive, informative and interesting day that allowed our attending officers to learn more about safeguarding in our community. We would encourage you all to look up those organisations and topics to learn more about how these groups and issues may have an impact on your communities.
Have a good week. Keep safe.
