Operation Hercules is a West Midlands Police (WMP) led initiative. Together, with West Midlands Fire Service and local authorities, it aims to deal with those involved in street racing and car cruising in the West Midlands.
Over the past few years, street racing and car cruising have become a major anti-social behaviour issue and resulted in major collisions that have caused serious injury and fatalities.
To help address these issues and make the streets of the West Midlands safer, we work with our partners to educate those involved and tackle this issue. To aid this education and prevention work, we've developed a diversionary course to educate the people who take part in this activity.
West Midlands Police gather intelligence identifying those who take part in these activities and they are requested to take part in the diversionary course to better understand the risks involved.
