Most police stations in the West Midlands county of England are now operated by the West Midlands Police, created on 1 April 1974, but many were built for its predecessors, and some of those closed before its creation. A number of the stations are listed buildings and others are locally listed by the relevant local authority. A few are operated by the British Transport Police.

This list also includes administrative buildings which do not have facilities for the visiting public.
