Keeping the city safe

Birmingham City Council is working closely with West Midlands Police (WMP) and other security partners to ensure we deliver a safe and secure Game in the city for all of our residents, businesses, and visitors.

The operation for Birmingham 2022 is the biggest in WMP’s history, and there will be over 3,000 officers involved in delivering a reassuring and proportionate policing and security operation, which will welcome visitors to the city and reflect the values of the Commonwealth Games. There will be officers involved from a range of police departments such as:

  • Firearms
  • Drones
  • Traffic
  • Counter terrorism

Officers from other forces and emergency services will also be present.

West Midlands Police’s plans include using the very latest in cutting edge security technology, with the aim being to ensure the Games are a safe and secure spectacle for everyone involved.
