Introduction

Every member of West Midlands Police is proud to serve. Policing is our passion and our people bring to life our desire to prevent crime, protect the public and help those in need.

In addition to competitive salaries, continuous training, and local and national secondment opportunities, WMP offers attractive benefits such as childcare vouchers and discounted travel schemes.

This site lays out for all to see the commitment all our officers and staff make to the public their colleagues and themselves.

HEALTH & WELLBEING

The health and wellbeing of our staff is of primary importance.

While the force will create safe and healthy work places, there is much people can do to improve their own wellbeing. A new section of the intranet has been created with advice on all aspects of physical and mental health, physical safety, and more.
