West Midlands Police have lost more than 2,000 officers since 2010 – taking its numbers down to the lowest level since 1974 when it was first established. However, there has been no corresponding decrease in demand – in fact, the opposite is true.
West Midlands Police is struggling to tackle crime and is being hit harder than any other force with cuts of £130 million to its budget.
