No one answers the 101 line for west midlands police. Called about 4 or 5 times today holding 10 mins.

The Police say:

We are sorry you have experienced problems contacting the Police via 101. Our operators work hard to deal with calls swiftly and efficiently to ensure as many calls as possible are answered promptly. There are times when the call handlers experience a high demand from the public. We have a team dedicated to try to understand the demand for resources across the whole of Force Contact, and to forecast and schedule those resources in a cost effective way in order to maximise service delivery. There are times however when we are physically unable to meet the demand.

How they dealt with the crime was like having a bunch of amateurs who where misleading the victim of crime so the aggressor of crime would walk away or to be put on a course. Theses people only turn up for work to do nothing else it's a very easy way to be over paid for giving out bull and blagging to their victims. I know now why the Government has done all the cut backs to the Police it is due to this. The Government needs to do more cut backs to the Police in Wolverhampton than the public would be getting a better service from the police in Wolverhampton even better to sell this organization off the private sector.The private sector would not stand blagging and amateur work where most of the people who work in Wolverhampton Police come under that category.

On finding out we had been burgled overnight we called West Midlands police and pc Sefton attended. She was very professional and thorough and very friendly. Also the scene of crime officer was amazing and went above and beyond his duties only regret not getting his name. Faith restored

The Police say:

Thanks for taking the time to leave your comments about the professional service you received from PC Sephton and her colleague, FSI Hillier. It's great to hear that they have restored your faith in West Midlands Police. Your comments have been forwarded on to the officers and their supervisors

Fantastic officer, thank you very much!

The Police say:

Thanks for taking the time to leave your comments regarding PC Ball. We are sorry to hear that you had to call the Police in the first instance, bearing in mind the circumstances. However, having called the Police it is great to hear that PC Ball gave you a first class service. Your comments have been forwarded to the officer and his supervisor

Professional and friendly PCs. They arrived quickly . Their words of advice were helpful and encouraged us not to be victims

I rang tonight to report my parents missing, who both have dementia and are in their 80's. The police were excellent and found them within 20 minutes. Thank you so much for such an excellent response

Ref: Logs 2330 - 04.02.17 & 664 - 05.02.17. I wish to take this opportunity to thank all Officers involved in the search for my son, whom I had reason to believe had attempted suicide. I am firmly of the opinion that without the excellent, professional,& prompt service provided by those Officers in locating my son and the prompt action taken thereon a sudden death would undoubtedly have ensued. Please accept my sincere thanks for a job well done.

I wish to comment on the unprofessional manner in which I was treated by a PCSO from Chelmsley Wood NHT. On Tuesday 22nd November I received a visit from a PCSO who advised me that one of my neighbours had reported the fact that I had apparently shouted over the fence on Bonfire night. I was never advised what I had supposed to have said. I agreed to meeting my neighbours in a mediation situation at the police station at a time suitably convenient to both parties. The meeting was arranged for Friday 9th December at 11am. I was further advised that I would receive a visit fro an officer advising me on how I should conduct myself at the meeting. On Tuesday 6th December I rang Chelmsley Wood NHT asking when the meeting would take place, I was advised by a sergeant that someone would be in touch. On Wednesday 7th December the investigating PCSO advised me that the meeting was postponed due to work commitments of my neighbour. He would arrange for another meeting date. On Thursday 2nd February I contacted the PCSO and enquired what was happening. He told me that the neighbours had withdrawn their complaint and apologised for not advising me. I am extremely annoyed by the unprofessional manner in which this PCSO handled the case. My wife has been very distraught during the waiting period over an incident that I have no idea of what I was supposed to have done. I can provide the PCSO's name if required and I would like to think that I may receive an apology and/or explanation from someone regarding this state of affairs.

The Police say:

We are sorry you feel aggrieved by the matter and by the PCSO in question. Your comments have been passed to the relevant Neighbourhood Inspector and investigated. We understand an apology was forthcoming from the officer when it was realised they had forgotten to update you.

i would like to thank the team from Low Hill who engaged with our scout group at Wednesfield custody block, the scout loved it and have not stopped talking about there time trying on police equipment, finger prints and learning how the WMP works thanks very much

I would like to comment on the brilliant way a PCSO dealt with a situation yesterday. Having come out of the Grand Theatre yesterday evening around 5.30, we were faced with chaos! Traffic was everywhere and the rain was making things a lot more problematic with everyone crowding around waiting for coaches/buses/taxis/lifts etc! A PCSO came into the middle of all this and took control very quickly, keeping the traffic flowing in what was a difficult situation which could have been made worse if he hadnt dealt with it in the way he did. He was very polite and professional and is a credit to his profession. Just looked on your team page and think his name is Leroy.

my husband has vascular dementia and went missing for almost 5 hours on 28th January. The service I have starting with the 101 operation to all the police officers who attended was exceptional. They could not have been more supportive. Thankfully he was found safe and well

The Police say:

Thanks for taking the time to leave your comments. We understand how distressing it can be when a loved one goes missing and we are pleased to hear that your husband was found safe and sound. It's nice to know that you received the service which you would expect when calling the Police under these circumstances. Please be assured your feedback has been forwarded to the relevant departments for their information.

I must give some feedback about the raid which took place on 22/1/17 at Queens court. Whilst visiting my mates new child a raid took place within queens court on a female drug dealer. It was nice to see the Police taking note of this old lady who lives by this person and how she was explaining to the Police what's it like living by her and how many people go to her for drugs. She thought the Police where taking no notice of her or her family members who have many times complained about her in the past. Seeing this action I know the police do act it might not be right away but they do act and taking note of every one young and old with their complaints.

It is nice to see old fashioned Police work taking place around the Fallings Park area at Queens court on 22/1/17 dealing with a drug dealer who has not got any respect for the Police and law and also people who live in the area of Kingsway Fallings Park Wolverhampton by dealing drugs. The Police officers who carried out the raid where professional in their investigation and how they conduct them self's towards people who live in the area where the raid took place. I hope the Police investigation as been constructive and to see her sent down for the hard work which was carried out by Low Hill Police . Good work within the community keep this good work up many thanks

My elderly parents were recently victims of a burglary. They were attended by pc Claire Bailey who was an absolute star !! She went above and beyond in her duties as a police officer. She helped my parents with their terrible ordeal and talked them through everything. She even heled my dad sort his phone out and dropped off some shopping to my aunt so that dad didn't have to leave mum on her own!! She is a credit to the force....thankyou Claire.

The Police say:

Ms Carswell, thank you for your positive comments regarding PC Bailey and her attendance at your parents home following such a traumatic ordeal. I hope that they are managing to cope following this incident and I have forwarded your comments to the officer concerned via her Supervisor.

A member of the public wrote: (User did not request a response)

A very minor, but upsetting, incident was dealt with by your call handler, Louise, in a professional but very sensitive and helpful manner. Likewise the two officers who attended my home were also very helpful and understanding. All three a credit to the force.

A member of the public wrote: (User did not request a response)

Fast and efficient response when I being attacked, the officers who dealt with the incident and the officer who toook my statement were brilliant and very supportive.

A member of the public wrote:

Absolute lack of Police support in the community for enforcement after categoric and indisputable evidence by concerned residents of speeding .

The Police say:

We are sorry you are seemingly unhappy with Police response in relation to speeding issues within the community. Without any further information it is difficult to formulate a meaningful response. You would be able to speak with your local neighbourhood team/supervisor about any matters which concerns you within the community. You can find out who to contact by going to the West Midlands Police website, and clicking on 'Your local Police'

A member of the public wrote: (User did not request a response)

West Midlands Police are extremely hard to contact via. 101. On several occasions I have given up after being on hold for several minutes. Not the fault of the call handlers, but the poor staffing levels (hence action required by the P&CC or ACC / CC. Without confidence in the ability to contact the Police the public will start to take the law into their own hands or abuse the 999 service by calling that number instead.

The colleagues on duty in the front office provided me with excellent service . They knew the information I needed and dealt with me in a very polite way . Very happy. I visited the station at around 1pm on 8th of December

The Police say:

Thank you for your kind words, I have passed them on to the enquiry staff who were on duty when you attended Walsall Police Station on the 8th December.
