Armed Forces support
West Mercia Police has signed the Armed Forces Covenant and is proud to employ a number of officers and staff with a forces background, whether they are veterans, reservists or cadet instructors.
We actively encourage people from such a background to apply for our current vacancies. We are very supportive of our existing staff who are also reservists and cadet instructors, with specific policies that enable them to meet their annual training requirement. We are one of only a few police forces in the UK to have received the coveted Employer Recognition Scheme Gold Award from the Armed Forces Covenant, which acknowledges the level of support and advocacy we offer to our colleagues with military backgrounds.
If you would like to speak to one of our Armed Forces Champions, please contact ArmedForcesChampion@westmercia.pnn.police.uk and we will arrange for you to talk informally with someone employed by West Mercia Police who is ex-military personnel.
