Parent Advice from West Midlands Police


1: Money Mules: What Parents and Carers need to know

Parents and guardians in the West Midlands are being urged to warn their children about the dangers of becoming a money mule, with new figures revealing the number of 14-18-year-olds misusing their bank accounts has risen by 73 per cent in the past three years.

2: Knife Crime Amnesty: Letter to Parents

Sandwell Police is working with all secondary schools across the Borough to help reduce the vulnerability of young people to knife crime, and continue to work jointly with Sandwell Council, School Councils and Head Teachers to understand the reasons behind a small number of our youth carrying weapons.

3: A safety message: Letter to Parents

It’s that time of year again where communities will be enjoying celebrations including Halloween, Diwali and Bonfire night. These celebrations provide opportunities for us all to enjoy time with our families and friends, and as children breakā€‘up from school this week, Sandwell Police Partnerships would like to share a message about keeping safe over this busy holiday period.
