There’s a local police pop-up event this morning (Wednesday 25th July 2018) with a bit of a difference – near the rear of the Tesco store in Brownhills, our local policing team will be demonstrating the drone capability provided by @Droneswmp.
The West Midlands Police drone team and local officers will be in attendance launching at the rear of Tesco Brownhills at approx 9.30am for members of the public to come along and take a look at the drone in action.
This may seem frivolous, but does have and continue to be used successfully in targeting all kinds of crime – including off-road motorcycle antisocial behaviour, a real problem in our area at the moment.
Come along, chat to the pilots, speak to your local neighbourhood team and see how this new technology is going to and already is helping fight crime & A.S.B in your area.
Sometimes a little thing makes a BIG difference.
Apart from anything else, it’ll be an excellent chance to check out a pro-level drone and a remarkable bit of technology. If I wasn’t at work I’d be there with my boots blacked…

I must say, it’s good to see the local police making such concerted efforts to reach out to the public.
Also, if you haven’t signed up for the brilliant WMNow alert service, please do – it’s free and you can select to receive alerts on all kinds of local issues. It’s a fine thing.
