My shed recently got broken into and the local police dealt with it in such a calm manner and proffessionalism it made us feel safe again.. The minute we reported the break in to the 999 police control room it was straight on all the police cars computers and was straight out tracking the suspect

The Police say:

Leon, thank you for your comments. We are glad you were satisfied with the calm and professional manner in which the Police dealt with your recent shed break. Hopefully there was nothing stolen and the suspect apprehended. Thanks for talking the time to use this website.

I think that there has been to many cuts to policing. We have seen the presence on the streets go down and the service especially follow up to victims of crime is not always done. I think the criminals especially thieves are taking advantage.

I was involved in a RTA (Log 1812) on Friday 7th April, and I would just like to say that the 2 officers that attended were brilliant, very helpful, courteous & professional. Please pass my thanks on to PC Hill 1783 and her colleague for their support at the scene Many thanks

Thanks for the swift and professional response

The Police say:

Helen, thank you for your comment. We are pleased that you are happy with the service you received from West Midlands Police. We always strive to deliver the best service possible and it's good to hear that we have achieved it on this occasion

absolutely disgusted by police nowadays. i have no hope for my children whatso ever. the 2 officers were inconsiderate pushy and thought they could treat me however they like. i am utterly disgusted by all police services including the 101 service. its no wonder why people are taking the law into their own hands.... because so called police who are apparently there to help you are letting the real criminals get away. your all just robots who follow a text book even though the truth of the incident will smack them in the face...which is why offenders and re-offenders get away with so much. there is no hope in the police force anymore .

I wish to thank the contact handler who dealt with my call on Monday. I was involved in a fail to stop RTC in stourbridge and, although I appreciate there was nothing the police could have done, the contact officer was very sympathetic, polite and professional throughout the call. Please pass on my gratitude to the Contact Officer and to her supervision.

The Police say:

Mr Lambe, thank you for your kind words. We are sorry there was nothing further which could be done on this occasion. However, it's great to hear that the call handler spoke with you in a polite and professional manner. Thank you again

I live in Lincoln and could not contact my elderly father for more that 24 hours, I called Solihull Police and a lovely Police Officer went round within an hour, my father was found to be absolutely fine, but had pressed a do not disturb button on his new phone, the officer sorted it for him, we spoke on the phone and all now appears to be well. Thank you very much Solihull police

After reporting an assault and theft that happened to me, officers came out and instead arrested me and not the person who committed the offence.The reason being.. the man who attacked me had visible injuries and i apparantly did not (i had bruised knees and broken nails due to me trying to defend myself). Your officers did not even search the person to retrieve my phone, and witnessed another person try to hit me in my face with a walking stick and did nothing. Instead I was the one who got arrested because I bit the man who attacked me on his arm so he would let me go....i got dragged through the court system and ounished for defending myself and as usual the criminal gets away. Your officers booked me into Perry Barr Police Station and told tje officer on the desk they were going back to search the man for my phone. This was never done and so i had my phone robbed and as a result of getting arrested I also got fined a large amount and got ordered to do 100 hours unpaid work and a restraining order stopping me from contacting the person who did this, despite them harassing me and even turning up to court to harass me despite claiming how "terrified" he was of me.How is this right or fair?

The Police say:

If you feel you have been wrongly convicted at court you should have sought advice from your solicitor in relation to appealing your conviction. Dependent upon when you were convicted you may still be within the allowed time frames and as such we would urge you to seek advice.

I called 101 on 13/03/17 to report a sexual assault. I got told officers would come to take a statement from me on 17/03/17 at 12.30pm but nobody arrived. I again called 101 to ask why officers didnt attend and I got told somebody would call me back shortly. Again nobody contacted me so I called 101 again today and officer on the phone said somebody will come out this afternoon to take a statement but I dont feel hopeful. 5 days after an assault and nothing has been done has left me feeling worthless and worse than I already did. It is no wonder victims of crimes of this nature do not feel confident in reporting it to the police. So angry and upset, yet again let down by the same people that should be protecting me. Next time I am a victim of crime I wont bother reporting it.

The Police say:

We are sorry you have experienced such problems with reporting this matter to the Police. It has been noted that you have now been able to speak with an officer and the investigation is underway. However this does not detract from the initial problems you encountered. It would appear that due to such a high demand being placed on the Police at the time of your appointment they were unable to keep it. Please accept our apologies and be reassured that the Police are taking this matter seriously

I own a hairdresser with my friend we haven't been open very long our police station is 5 minutes from our salon.. today a drunk man came into our shop and would not leave so I rang the police at the time he wasn't being aggressive..we were told a officer would be with us to deal with him no one arrived..neither of us could leave the shop because we didn't no what would happen...we were both shuck up with this...we finally talked him into leaving after a lot of abuse and him lying on the floor...thank you for your support...I'm totally disgusted

The Police say:

Stacey, sorry to hear you feel totally let down by the Police. It is a little difficult to look any further in to this without any more detail. If you would like a more detailed response we would be grateful if you would be able to provide us with some more detail; location; times and dates and caller details. Thank you

Totally useless, bone idle. They tell me that a stalker I had will not be causing me anymore trouble and a couple of weeks later I am forced to complain about her again... Only this time they are not bothered. So allow my wellbeing be compromised just because West Midlands Police cannot be bothered or are too lazy to investigate

The Police say:

Your comments have been noted, I am sorry that you are dissatisfied with the response you have had as a result of reporting on going harassment, I can see your details on the crime portal system and that the matter has been filed having been dealt with. As you are still receiving harassment from this individual I have arranged for contact to be made with you to arrange a further meeting with you.

A family member of mine was attack over 48 hours ago. Police was immediately contacted by the college. We waited for them for 3hours at the college they were a no show as they did not have any units that day. The college said they have asked the police to come to our home address as the family was in shock from the attack. However they were a no show on the day of the incident and now 48hours later we are the ones chasing the police. Do you even care?

The Police say:

I am sorry that your family member has yet to be spoken to by an officer with regard to an incident on Tuesday due to there being no officer available at that time. Diary car appointments are made for mutually convenient times to deal with such matters and I understand that she is due to be spoken with.

7.55am, 8th March. Witnessed two uniformed officers persecuting a homeless man outside the Halifax bank on Colmore Row. Unable to get Police ID numbers as did not want to inflame the distressing situation. Why are WMP now harrassing the most vulnerable in society??

Was attacked in Walsall town centre by 2 refugees police attend asked police to check cctv cameras in the town was asked how you know they where refugees they didn't check cctv cameras which where every angle in Park St walsall was told they might not be on cctv because cameras keep moving they wrote everything in there note pad and said are you ok and would you like me to walk you to your car I wanted police to check cctv cameras I've got log number but no one ever contacted me since no crime no nothing

The Police say:

I am unable to locate the incident you make reference to on police systems. Could you provide some specific times and dates that you made contact with West Midlands Police regarding this matter and the number you called from. This will enable me to listen to the calls and determine what went wrong on this occasion.

A member of the public wrote:

Very disappointed with west Midlands Police there has been a 12 month investigation and wasn't kept up-to-date with the case by the police officer in charge I myself was constantly ringing police for updates to be told he isn't in the office he will call you back but never did when I did get to speak to the officer in charge it was lots of excuses why he didn't keep me updated with the case did not tell me when defendant was arrested and bailed did not arrest defendant for breaching her restraining order reported harassment from defendants family nothing done reported threatening behaviour from defendant nothing done reported criminal damage nothing done was also told there's enough evidence to charge defendant but cps told me there's insufficient evidence after police been investigating for 12 months

The Police say:

Thank you for your remarks, I have viewed the case on police systems and am unable to discuss the matter with you as you are not the injured party in the case. I am sorry that you feel that a year long investigation by an officer was insufficient, should the victim of the crime wish to discuss the matter I am sure that the officer in charge of the case or their supervisor will provide a full explanation.

A member of the public wrote:

I previously submitted a comment about the new police station at Lloyd House and the signage but my comments have been ignored and not published. I assure you I was quite serious, I choose to express myself in a certain way but I don't see why I should be ignored. I am very insulted.

The Police say:

Your comment was received on the 10/2 and went 'live' on the 13/2. Unfortunately we do not have any contact details for you to discuss the matter or make a follow up call.

A member of the public wrote:

101 call s charges needs to be drop total rip off @ 0.14p an min

The Police say:

Thank you for your comment. To call the Police on 101 costs 15p per call and not per minute. This small cost goes to the telephony provider to cover the cost of carrying the call. Neither the Police or the Government receive any money from members of the public calling 101. We hope this clarifies the situation for you.

We had an incident of attempted burglary on the evening on 28 Feb. Everything from call handling to speed of response, curtesy of police offices and follow up today has been fantastic. If I could rate as outstanding I would do. You do a fantastic job and I can't thank you all enough.
