West Mercia Police student officer recruitment
New police officers - apply now

West Mercia is a safe place to live and crime figures remain low. However, we can all play a part in reducing crime even further. There are a wide range of opportunities available across West Mercia for people who want to contribute to their local community by making it a safer place to live.

In addition to joining as a new police officer or transferee officer, these include:

Special Constables, Police Support Volunteers, Cadets, neighbourhood watch and Citizens' Academy members are recruited from people living across West Mercia: you can join to help police the streets in your community. In return, you can expect to receive a great deal of support from West Mercia Police, as well as the opportunities to learn new skills and make new friends.

You can 'get involved' in other ways too without having to take up a voluntary role. Use the Partners and Communities Together (PACT) process to tell us about local issues and concerns, follow simple crime prevention advice to reduce your risk of becoming a victim of crime, or you could join in one of our online web chats to talk about policing issues.
