Over 2,000 people have applied for just two apprentice posts with the force’s Forensics team.

The vacancies – promoted with WMP’s Facebook followers – reached over half a million people with 3,600 shares and attracted 2,500 comments.

Interest was so high the three-week application window had to be closed early as staff struggled to cope with the deluge of forms.

Head of FSI and Major Crime Michelle Painter said: “We were overwhelmed by the popularity of the vacancies, and the applications have included some very strong candidates.

“It is heartening to see so many people want to join West Midlands Police. I’m really looking forward to holding the interviews.

“While we’re thrilled that over 2,000 young people applied, the reality is there are only two vacancies. A lot of young people who expressed an interest to work for WMP will be disappointed.

“We’re now working with HR about other potential career opportunities within the force for unsuccessful applicants.”
