Reason for Authority (Brief Summary for Publication)
The communities of Birmingham have seen a rise in public-place violence over the last few months, with some very serious levels of force, including cases of weapons being used. West Midlands Police is determined to tackle this issue head-on, and to use the full range of powers available to us where proportionate and necessary.Alongside a number of proactive and investigative activities taking place, an authority under section 60 of the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994 has been made, whereby between 1600hrs on 26th February until 0400hrs on 27th February officers will have the power to search people in the City Centre, Small Heath and Bordesley Green [as per the attached map]. Anyone who has any information about crime and disorder in the area can report it by: web chat through our website or telephone on 101 (including anonymously, if they wish).
