Reporting Suspicious Circumstances - It is very important that if you see or hear anything suspicious, you call the police straight away on 101. If there is an immediate threat of danger then use 999. We know that many incidents get shared on Social Media, but we ask that we are called first or at least at the same time. We can then carry out the necessary checks in real time, especially if the registration number of vehicles can be seen. We can then decide the level of response needed. Remember - if you think something is suspicious - it probably is....

Alcester and Bidford Community Forum Policing Poll - The latest Poll is now live and will close on the 18th June. Please click on the following link to vote. Please choose the suggestion that you would like to see set as a priority for the next three months. The top three will be chosen. These extra patrols are above the normal work of the Team.
