Our Strategy

We have big ambitions for our future and we have a three-year strategy about how we’ll get there. Called This Work Matters, it provides a framework for the way we’ll work by building on our strengths.

Every single one of our people has a part to play in making our plans come to life.

We know that working for West Midlands Police is not just a job. We know that this work matters. Our strategy supports the delivery of the Police and Crime Plan and is designed on the principle of helping people make the biggest difference they can. 

It does this by better supporting our people to:

  • connect with people
  • make the best decisions possible
  • learn and improve each day
  • work together with others
  • look after themselves and others
