The Oscott Neighbourhood Police Initiative are looking for new members.
The NPI operate on a rota basis from the Kingstanding Police Station every Wednesday, passing on local Policing news to their street coordinators and in return passing on information about anti socail behavior or crime picked up from Street Coordinators to the Police.
This localised personal system of operation has worked well for a number of years and has helped keep the Oscott Ward as one of the lowest in Birmingham when it comes to crime.
The NPI works in cooperation with Neighbourhood Watch schemes in the area.
If you would like to be considered as a Sector Coordinator and work from the Kingstanding Police Station on a Wednesday (a CRB check is required) or would like to be a NPI Street Coordinator receiving information at home from the NPI please ring 303 5502 for details.
Some NPI members also put out crime prevention leaflets and attend Police meetings to help the Police liaise better with the Local community.
With reductions expected in the numberS of Police, working together to prevent crime, as a community is even more important than ever
