West Midlands Police is the second largest police force in the country, covering an area of 348 square miles and serving a population of almost 2.8 million.
The region sits at the very heart of the country and covers the three major centres of Birmingham, Coventry and Wolverhampton. It also includes the busy and thriving districts of Sandwell, Walsall, Solihull and Dudley. Leisure, retail and conference amenities, together with Premiership and Championship football and Rugby teams, attract millions of visitors annually. Preparations are also well underway for hosting Coventry City of Culture in 2021 and the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham in 2022.
The West Midlands is an area rich in diversity, with 18 per cent of its population from ethnic minority backgrounds. The region also has the youngest population in the country and the most diverse outside of the capital. West Midlands Police are proud of their achievements, but are also continuously looking for new ways to improve the service, to prevent crime, protect the public and help those in need.
