Coronavirus (COVID-19)

How we are working to keep our FOI Requests running during COVID-19

Iplod App (4820_14)


  1. Does the police force deploy the Self Evident app, or similar style app such as the so called “iPlod”app, that enables members of the public to report a crime electronically without needing to call the police?
  2. How many crimes have been reported using this method since the force started deploying the app, broken down by year?
  3. What assessment has the force made of the technique since its introduction and the impact it has had on the number of reports of crimes?


The West Midlands Police do not employ the use of the “Self Evident” or “Iplod” app.
