    VEV: Visual Evidence for Victims
    VEV is a service being offered by Victim Support West Midlands for victims of crime who do not wish to report a crime to the police, but would like evidence of the crime recorded, should it be required in future. Examples are victims of domestic violence or hate crime. There are many reasons why a victim may not want to report the crime straight away, and VEV provides a photographic record, supported by witness statements that will stand up in court. Photos may be taken of physical injuries, damage and graffiti. For more details contact Walsall Victim Support on 01922 644000.

    Door viewer/intercoms & shed alarms
    are available free of charge to local residents, for more details see Walsall people website

    Distraction Burglaries
    Be aware that offenders have called at homes in the area claiming to be from the water board, and ask the victims to turn taps on whilst offenders go through house, taking money. This is often targeted at the elderly, and it is well worth the reminder that unknown callers should be asked for identity which can be checked by calling the represented company for confirmation prior to allowing visitors into the home. Note a tactic used by offenders includes obtaining residents names by asking always check identification and verify by calling the company.

    Objectives of Neighbourhood Watch

    • To prevent crime By improving security, increasing vigilance, creating and maintaining a caring community and reducing opportunities for crime by increasing crime prevention awareness.

    • To assist the police in detecting crime By promoting effective communication and the prompt reporting of suspicious and criminal activity.

    • To reduce undue fear of crime By providing accurate information about risks and by promoting a sense of security and community spirit, particularly amongst the more vulnerable members of the community.

    • To improve police/community liaison By providing effective communications through systems such as the Neighbourhood Watch Ringmaster system, which warns Co-ordinators of local crime trends which they can disseminate to their scheme members, and by members informing the police of incidents when they occur.
