Membership

Membership of the Safer Solihull Board includes a range of organisations which operate in the borough of Solihull.

The Crime and Disorder Act 1998 and the Police Reform Act 2002 gave local authorities, police authorities and fire services "Responsible Authority Status" to work together and promote community safety in their everyday work. Care Trusts received this status from April 2004 and this later changed in 2013 to include Clinical Commissioning Groups.

The Safer Solihull Board consists of representatives from the following organisations:

  • Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council is the local authority serving the Solihull area. Councillor Alison Rolf is the Cabinet Member with responsibility for Community Safety.
  • Solihull Clinical Commissioning Group is the organisation responsible for making sure that healthcare services are available for the people of Solihull.

  • West Midlands Police are responsible for crime prevention and crime detection in the Metropolitan Borough of Solihull. The force is divided into 8 autonomous units known as Neighbourhood Policing Units (NPUS), each controlled by a Chief Superintendent answerable to the Chief Constable.

In addition to these organisations there are a number of others that support the work of the Safer Solihull Local Police and Crime Board and help make Solihull a safe place to live, work and visit.

All organisations have a key interest in the reduction of crime and disorder and how drugs, alcohol and anti-social behaviour issues are addressed.
