Oswestry Town West
There are a wide range of opportunities available within West Mercia for people who want to make their community a safer and better place.
PACT - Agreeing Local Priorities
PACT stands for Partners and Communities Together. It gives you the chance to tell your local policing team, local authority and other partner agencies about the issues that are causing concern within your neighbourhood and which ones you want us to deal with as a priority. Find out more about how you can get involved with PACT.
Join A Watch Scheme
Watch schemes encourage communities to work together to protect themselves and their property, which in turn can help to reduce the fear of crime and improve the local environment. Find out more about watch schemes and other community activities and how you can get involved.
Become A Volunteer
There are a number of ways to get involved directly to help your community by volunteering with West Mercia Police. Opportunities can include helping to run PACT meetings, assisting at police station front counters or helping us undertake public surveys.Find out more about how you can volunteer your time and skills.
Special constables are volunteers who carry out a variety of roles alongside regular officers to help police their communities. They have the same powers as regular police officers (e.g. being able to arrest), wear a similar uniform and face the same challenges, but the role is a part-time one - a minimum of four hours each week, normally at evenings and weekends. Specials form an important part of local policing teams and carry out a whole range of policing duties, including foot patrols, road safety initiatives and house to house enquiries. Find out more about joining the Special Constabulary.
