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).

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

The IOPC said in a statement: “We began our enquiries after a mandatory referral from West Midlands Police in November 2021 about the former officer’s conduct.

“On completion of our investigation we sent a file of evidence to the Crown Prosecution Service, which authorised the charge this month.”

Walter will make his first appearance before Birmingham Magistrates Court at 10am today (Wednesday February 22).
