Within this area live around one and three quarter million people - the people we serve. They include over half a million in Warwickshire and 1.2 million in West Mercia.

Our communities cover four counties: Herefordshire, Shropshire (which includes Telford and Wrekin), Warwickshire and Worcestershire.

Whilst much of our area is rural, the conurbations we police include Hereford, Kidderminster, Leamington, Nuneaton, Shrewsbury, Telford, Redditch, Rugby and Worcester. We tailor our policing to our communities, responding to issues that affect deprived urban areas as well as rural communities.
