Officers are using Section 60 powers in the town centre area of Sutton Coldfield.

The order which started this afternoon at 12:45:00 hours, covers Sutton Coldfield Town Centre, and neighbouring streets, giving the police a power to stop and search people we suspect may to be involved in violence, without the need to have reasonable grounds.

The Section 60 is in place after a number of incidents of violence which have included the use of knives and hammers.

Our priority is to protect YOU the public. If you have any information on knife crime, call us on 101 to report.

In an emergency dial 999.
