21 May 2009: On behalf of their acting chief constable Philip Gormley they stated revealing a normal 01 or 03 number

"Would, or would be likely to, prejudice -
(a) the prevention or detection of crime,
(b) the apprehension or prosecution of offenders,
(c) the administration of justice"
and
"would, or would be likely to -
(a) endanger the physical or mental health of any individual, or
(b) endanger the safety of any individual."
and
"West Midlands Police will not disclose information that could harm individuals, or that could compromise the operational effectiveness of its officers."

26 June 2009: Article in Private Eye magazine results in kind, concerned and knowledgeable readers volunteering the normal 0121 telephone numbers West Midlands Police are keeping secret from the public it is supposed to be serving. These numbers ring straight into West Midlands Police's call centre - in exactly the same way as 0845 numbers.

0121 - 687 4070   &   0121 - 236 5000
