Colleague PC Andy Parsons tweeted: ‘Literally mixing up the tactics tonight to get out and meet students enjoying the night life across WMP and promote Safer Students.’
The pair from the force’s Safer Students team were filmed at three venues across the West Midlands- kicking the night off at Yates in Wolverhampton.
They tweeted at 11pm: ‘Spreading Safer Student vibes in Yates Wolves, where to next #soundofdapolice.’
The officers then visited students enjoying themselves at Empire nightclub, in Coventry.
The last stop for the duo was Pryzm where they were branded the ‘coolest police force’ the students had ever seen.
PRZYM Birmingham tweeted: ‘The strangest thing just happened. Massive shoutout to the coolest police force! Safer Students, West Midlands Police.’

Delighted students also took to social media with Emma Tuxworth writing: ‘OMG, a cop just got in the DJ booth and started mixing tunes. Best thing I’ve ever seen.’
Dan Ball added: ‘The police officer DJ’ing @PryzmBirmingham absolutely made my night.’
A spokeswoman for West Midlands Police said: ‘The officers were off duty and wanted to promote our Safer Students campaign in an engaging way.
‘They went to three venues as part of our campaign which gives new students advice and tips on how to keep themselves and their property safe as they start university.
‘PC SImmons was a DJ himself up until 16 months ago when he quit to focus on his police career.
‘He held a residency at the Bell in Stourbridge and started out at the age of 18 DJ’ing at the Nightingale club in Birmingham.’
