West Midlands special constables for Halloween

Special constables across the West Midlands will be out in force over the Halloween and Bonfire Night period.

They will work on activities alongside regular officers including carrying out high-visibility patrols and targeting anti-social behaviour hotspots.

Communities often express concern to local officers about anti-social behaviour at this time of year, West Midlands Police said.

Operation Scarecrow will run until 7 November.
