POLICE Community Support Officers (PCSOs) will be boarding the trains today (Friday) to discuss local issues with Solihull commuters.
The St Alphege neighbourhood team has teamed up with British Transport Police and will be chatting with passengers.
Officers will be getting on board at Solihull train station and will be travelling to-and-from Widney Manor train stration.
Sgt Kirk Whitehouse, who leads the St Alphege neighbourhood policing team, said: “We are always looking at new ways to engage with our communities and by travelling on the local trains we feel it will enable us to chat to members of the public who we may not normally encounter in our day-to-day business.
“There are a large number of people who come to Solihull to work, shop or socialise and we want to make sure their journey is as safe as possible.”
This morning’s event is the first of several beat surgeries designed to engage with the local community. Similar events at different locations will be announced soon.
