Regional Organised Crime Unit (ROCU)

About ROCU

The West Midlands Regional Organised Crime Unit is a collaboration between the police forces of Staffordshire, West Midlands, West Mercia and Warwickshire to fight organised crime across the region.

The aim of the ROCUWM is to reduce the impact and increase the disruption of serious and organised crime within the region and beyond.

We target those areas of criminality we believe pose the greatest regional threats to the people and businesses of the area we cover.

Working alongside other UK law enforcement agencies and many other partners from both private and public sectors, the ROCUWM will directly influence the capabilities of these groups, stifling and reducing their criminal activity.

Meet our Team

There are a number of teams that form the West Midlands Region ROCU made up of  both Police Officers & Police Staff.

The ROCU is made up of the following teams:

RCU – Regional Confidential Unit

RCCU – Regional Cyber Crime Unit

RART – Regional Asset Recovery Team 

TIDU – Technical Intelligence Development Unit

ACE – Asset Confiscation Enforcement

RCIU – Regional Covert Investigations Unit

RUU – Regional Undercover Unit

Who can Apply to work with ROCU?

For our Police Officer roles we welcome expressions of interest to join ROCU from existing substantive serving officers within ROCUWM Forces only (West Midlands, Warwickshire, West Mercia or Staffordshire).

Please note if you are a West Midlands Police Officer you are able to register your interest and apply for roles on the internal careers page in the normal way.

Police Staff roles are open to all – We welcome people from a range of different backgrounds, with a variety of skills, experience and qualifications. Due to the sensitivity of our work, however, there are certain criteria that you must meet to be eligible to work within ROCU.


All applicants will be vetted before appointment / offer. Due to the nature of the roles within ROCU all applicants will be vetted to ‘Management Vetting’ level and also undertake SC vetting, including Police Staff. Candidates must normally have been resident in the UK for the last 5 years.
