This week marks the first day of what the West Midlands Police call ‘Mischief Week’. Despite the name, it’s a period of just over two weeks which runs from Tuesday 22nd October until Monday 5th November.
The run up to Halloween and Bonfire Night can often come with a spike in anti-social behaviour, however this has been anticipated this and a vigilant campaign to help combat public offence issues has been put in place.
Committed to the cause, West Midlands Police will be seen out on patrol a lot more in the coming weeks either on foot or in a vehicle. The team will also be visiting premises that sell fireworks, holding educations talks in schools, patrolling at school finishing times and safeguarding firework displays.
