Since the police re-organisation in Birmingham, Cllr Hutchings and I were told this week that there are now 11 microbeats in Edgbaston Ward – each with its own PC.
That’s good. What we are still trying to get clarification of however, is which of these will be put together for PACT meetings purposes and where these meetings will in future be held.
Previously several of our neighbourhood policing areas cut across ward boundaries (with Harborne, Selly Oak, Ladywood and Soho). Now, with the new LPUs, this is not supposed to happen, so we do need to know what areas Edgbaston’s PACT meetings will cover, and when and where they will be held in future. When I get this information, I will post it here.
