Message from the Police & Crime Commissioner

As Police & Crime Commissioner I am pleased we are delivering on the recruitment of police officers. By 2020 I promised to recruit 900 officers, 200 specialist staff and 150 PCSOs, to help keep the public safe.


I want people from all backgrounds to apply to be a police officer to make the force look more like the communities it serves. We need to make sure that people from all communities apply to join the police to make sure we are harnessing the talents of all the people in the West Midlands.


Joining the police is a fantastic opportunity to serve your community and help to keep people safe. With the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham and Coventry City of Culture just round the corner this is brilliant time to join the force.


These new officers will make a real difference.


David Jamieson - Police & Crime Commissioner
