The Regional Policy Officer role is vital in supporting four Police and Crime Commissioners to fulfil their obligations to the Home Office mandated Strategic Policing Requirement. In doing so you will also be supporting the four Police and Crime Commissioners to deliver their own Police and Crime Plans. You will undertake this role as part of four different teams across the West Midlands region, but you will also be required to work independently.  In undertaking this role you will support four Police and Crime Commissioners in their governance and oversight function as your work will allow them to scrutinise their forces, regional and national collaborations, thus holding those agencies to account.

The West Midlands region is a vibrant and diverse part of the country and the four Police and Crime Commissioners are committed to equality and diversity and welcomes applications from individuals of all backgrounds. Applicants must be able to demonstrate a good understanding of diversity and human rights, and a personal commitment to promoting diversity and racial equality.
