West Midlands Police

About Us

West Midlands Police is England’s second largest police force. Together we serve the 2.9 million people who call the region home - one of the youngest and most diverse populations in Europe.


The shared vision of our 12,500 officers, staff and volunteers is to be recognised as a police service that is big enough to cope with everything that is asked of us, while showing we are small enough to care about the things that really matter to people.

This vision is built on three strategic priorities:

  • A service that works for local people
  • Engaged communities
  • Employer of choice

We will achieve each of these goals to enable us fulfil our mission of working in partnership, making communities safer.


These are the values which guide all of our actions and decision making:

  • Service – we put people first ​
  • Integrity – we always do the right thing ​
  • Compassion – we see the person needing help​
  • Professionalism – we lead by good example ​
  • Equality, Diversity and Human Rights – we treat everyone fairly

West Midlands Police is a Disability Confident Leader - the highest level an organisation can achieve under the scheme run by the Department of Work and Pensions. We operate a Disability Confident Interview Scheme. All candidates who share with us that they are disabled and meet the essential criteria for the role will be offered an interview*.
