If you enjoy facing challenges and solving problems and would like to contribute to keeping your community safe while developing a wider range of skills, then policing could be for you. Few jobs can be more rewarding than that of a police officer: from day one you'll be helping to fight crime and protecting people from harm. \n You'll quickly find that no two days are the same. Policing is challenging and rewarding. As a police constable, you'll get to learn new skills, meet new people, gain a degree from Staffordshire University and set out on a career path that could see you specialise as a firearms officer, dog handler, traffic cop, detective or the trusted, familiar face of West Mercia Police in the community. We have a strong family ethos, where our friendly teams work closely together to get the job done and where you will be treated as a valued member of the team from day one. \n Here's what we want \n Good communicators with a calm, confident personality; problem solvers; team players; and people who easily build relationships, respect other people and appreciate views from communities across the region. If this is you we would like to hear from you.
