Frankfurt Christmas Market returns to Birmingham, Midlands Police ensure safety and security of visitors


Frankfurt Christmas Market is returning to Birmingham as it opens today. More visitors and shoppers are heading into the city to enjoy the demand and the other festive events in the run-up to Christmas. West Midland Police are working days and nights to ensure the peace, security and safety of the visitors and shoppers roaming the area.

As always, when more people come into cities and towns, the West Midlands Police of the United Kingdom plans and respond accordingly, with a more visible presence of Police and extra patrols across the area to ensure safety and security for everyone.


As per the information shared by the West Midlands Police of the United Kingdom on Facebook, Police will be working in plain-clothed along with the residents and local BID officers to tackle anyone who tries to forbid the law or act suspiciously. West Midlands Police added that dogs unit and drone teams would also be on hand as part of 24/7 work safeguarding the public.

We also work closely with Frankfurt Christmas Market security staff and stall holders to share information during daily briefings. Safer Travel police teams will be patrolling the buses, trains and trams coming in and out of the city.

The Police will also try to work closely with the Frankfurt Christmas Market security staff and stall holders so that they can comfortably share the information.

In one of their statements, Superintendent Sallie Churchill added, “As always, we can’t wait to welcome the Frankfurt Christmas Market and the many visitors it attracts each year.

“We will have extra officers in and around the market and the more expensive city centre keeping visitors and traders safe, and they’ll also be on hand to help anybody who has any concerns,” said Superintendent Sallie Churchill.

“Throughout the year, we carry out Project Servator patrols which use armed officers, amongst others, to provide a high-visibility presence to deter and disrupt criminal activity. This will be the same over the 2022 festive period.


“Our patrols and officers will be across the city centre, taking in all its Christmas attractions, including the ice rink and big wheel in Centenary Square, as well as all our other towns and cities hosting festive markets and events.

“Don’t worry if you don’t always spot our officers, though, as there’ll be a plain-clothes activity, along with CCTV monitoring, to help ensure we’ve got eyes and ears where we need them.

“Whilst festive attractions bring joy to millions, sadly, we also know that a tiny minority may be out to commit a crime -, particularly pickpocket-style offences.

“With such a vast number of people visiting seasonal attractions, we’d encourage everyone to stay alert and tuck away personal belongings, especially mobile phones and wallets.

In one of the official statements by the Midlands Police of the United Kingdom on Facebook, the force added that “We want everyone who comes to visit the German Christmas Market and all the festive events Birmingham, as well as the West Midlands, has to offer to have a good time, so we’d encourage people to stay safe and enjoy the festivities.”
