The latest Police Federation Survey has rated officers at West Mercia Police as having the worst morale
The annual survey also found officers at the force don't feel they're treated fairly.
Steve Williams from Telford is a former detective constable at West Mercia, and told us he wouldn't recommend anyone join the police nowadays.
He says cuts to civilian staff mean officers are now spending time typing up statements rather than being out on the streets.
