The West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner and the father of murdered James Brindley have unveiled Walsall's first weapon surrender bin today.
Mark and Charlotte Brindley lost their son, James, in June 2017.
James, who was just 26-years-old, died in his parents’ arms just metres from their home in Aldridge, Walsall.
The weapon surrender bin is a secure container, designed for people to dispose of knives. It is located at the Tesco on Littleton Street West.
The other bins have so far been placed in Wolverhampton, Birmingham, Dudley, Coventry and Sandwell.
The people of Walsall have been telling us for some time that they would like a weapon surrender bin. I'm delighted to announce that we've been able to make this happen.
