  • The morale of officers at West Midlands Police is among the worst in the country - according to the findings of a pay and morale survey. Two thirds (66.3 per cent) of respondents from the Force said they were suffering from low personal morale – putting the Force in the top three. And 96 per cent said Force morale was low. This puts the Force fifth in this category – with 38 forces with a smaller proportion of respondents who feel that morale within their force is low.
