I am writing to inform you that we have searched our records and the information you requested is not held by West Midlands Police.


Please note that there is no current accreditation in respect of being an officer with a specialist knowledge of flags.


West Midlands Police has however circulated to local policing unit’s documentation (including flags), for their training.
