Former West Midlands Officer PC Steven Walters To Appear In Court

A former West Midlands Police constable has been charged with misconduct in public office, following an investigation by the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC).

The charge against 54-year-old Steven Walters, who left the force in 2016, alleges that on 14 July 2013 while acting as a police constable, he wilfully misconducted himself by engaging in inappropriate sexual activity with a woman.

The IOPC began there enquiries after a mandatory referral from West Midlands Police in November 2021 about the former officer’s conduct.

On completion of that investigation, a file of evidence was sent to the Crown Prosecution Service, which authorised the charge this month. Mr Walters will make a first appearance before Birmingham Magistrates Court at 10am tomorrow (Wednesday, 22 February).
