Equality and Diversity

Police Officer offering support

Our continued commitment is to equality, diversity and inclusion, providing a policing service which meets the needs of all the public who use our service, as well as those that we employ and who volunteer for us.

West Mercia Police serves over 1.2 million people across a diverse region of 2,868 square miles, making it the fourth largest police area in England and Wales. We operate through five local policing areas - Herefordshire, North Worcestershire, South Worcestershire, Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin. Our communities are evolving and changing, and my officers and staff ensure that they have a rich picture of the communities they serve, understanding and valuing difference.

Our Police and Crime Commissioner, John Campion, fully supports our equality and diversity work programme and the efforts of our officers and staff in engaging with the diverse communities across West Mercia, promoting equality and diversity and ensuring positive outcomes.

We are focusing on increasing the number of police officers and are striving to ensure we attract and retain staff from the most under-represented groups. An efficient representative and fully resourced workforce will deliver our policing priorities through increased police officer numbers, whose composition is reflective of the demographic makeup of our county.
