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 within the force for people who want to contribute to their local community by making it a safer place to live.

Special Constables, Police Support Volunteers, Cadets, recognised watch scheme, Independent Advisory Groups and Citizens' Academy members are recruited from people living across Herefordshire, Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin and Worcestershire: 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. Attend a partners and communities together meeting to tell us about local issues and concerns, sign up for our Community Message Service (CMS), 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.
