    Default West Midlands Police - placing geocaches

    The Soho & Victoria neighbourhood policing team (West Midlands) have placed two geocaches as a way of interacting with geocachers in their community.

    The caches are:

    Back to the Roots GC556BY
    Turtle Mania GC58MX7

    There has been a news article this week http://www.west-midlands.police.uk/l...s.aspx?id=1420

    I have sent them an email telling them about the GAGB (in case they aren't aware of us) and asked if they would like to write a short article for our next issue of Seeker magazine.
    GAGB member since 2005
    GAGB Committee member 2010 to 2016 (Chair 2012 to 2015)
    UK Mega Event Chairman 2009 (Weston-super-Mare)

    The two officers in the article photos look a little scary..............
    Cannot see these caches been ''nicked'' any time soon!

    The cache seems stocked originally with crime prevention advice - a move I applaud. I am also very happy to see GSP accepting the possibility that some caches with an "agenda" are a good thing.

    What a pity they did not feel so some years ago when a cache was set up near the Tsunami Aid centre after the Ceylon tragedy and required that archived.

    These police caches break the placement rules... No commercial advertising... (jks)
