Your Local Scheme
The Moorpool Estate
Moor Pool Estate Harborne is a historic garden suburb founded in 1908 and has strong community values but over the last few years both Moor Pool and the wider Harborne area has seen an increase in car crime, burglaries and drug related activities, as part of a wider national trend. Statistics show that better-connected communities help reduce crime and this scheme aims to strengthen the connection between community and the police family. Being better equipped with information about how to stay safe and protect your property as well as look out for each other is a step in the right direction. Registering to WMNOW Ã¢â‚¬â€œ the official West Midlands Police messaging system - allows the Police to keep you up-to-date with crime trends and advise latest prevention measures. I also have community WhatsApp groups setup for each road so neighbours can keep each other informed of emergencies including house or car alarms being triggered and suspicious activity. We also run StreetWatch supported by PCSOs from Harborne neighbourhood policing team where local residents volunteer just 2 hours a month to patrol streets; offering community reassurance, crime prevention advice and reporting back to the police any criminal activity seen. If you're interested in joining or want more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org . I also organise popup crime prevention drop-ins alongside events at Moor Pool Hall so look out for info in the Duck newsletter or on posters around the estate.
