The towns of Brownhills, Aldridge, Bloxwich, Willenhall, Darlaston and Walsall make up the Borough, which is home to an estimated population of 254,500 people (2007). Walsall is a diverse and multi-cultural borough, with over 180,000 residents aged 16 to 74 and over 41.7% of the population in employment. Traditionally an industrial area and famous for its leather and lock industries, Walsall Borough is now recognised for its art gallery, state of the art College and a brand new hospital which is scheduled to open this summer (2010). Policing in the borough is based on local authority Neighbourhood Management Area (NMA) boundaries, and each team consists of a sergeant and a number of police constables, police community support officers and special constables. Together their sole objective is to tackle crime and address issues of greatest concern to residents, particularly anti-social behaviour. Set up your own Neighbourhood Watch Set up your own Neighbourhood Watch, a proven way to reduce crime. Households in active neighbourhood watch schemes tend to experience less crime as they are more aware of their personal and home security and pay more attention to what is going on in their street. Regular contact with neighbourhood policing teams brings greater awareness of what is going on in their area. In addition, being part of neighbourhood watch brings other benefits, for example: ‘Relay’ messages – the relay system is a free automated messaging system that is used to send out crime prevention and other messages to neighbourhood watch co-ordinators. Regular newsletters. These can also be sent out be e-mail Access to other services, offered by the Home Office, Safer Walsall Partnership and West Midlands Police Cheaper home insurance! Neighbourhood watch street signs available free of charge You can be assured of plenty of support from the police and fellow co-ordinators. The amount of work involved is minimal, and setting up a scheme is very easy.

Priorities Drug Dealing and Anti Social Behaviour Thicketts Close area. Residents have been complaining about groups of youths hanging around the flats and on the canal bridge smoking drugs and being intimidating due to their numbers.
