Chief Constable

Closing Date: July 21st, 2015


Police forces in England are facing unprecedented challenges as financial pressures place increasing demand on the modern police service to do more with less. At the same time we know there is lots of hidden demand and that areas such as child sexual exploitation, sexual violence and cyber-crime are all under reported.

As a force we continually punch above our weight and have come a long way in the last few years. We are collaborating with other police forces, local authorities and partner agencies to meet demand in the most efficient manner. The culture of the organisation has evolved to fully embrace new technology, to empower local policing teams to make decisions and to take action, moving away from the traditional command and control structure. We have put protecting the vulnerable and supporting the victims of crime at the centre of policing policy, prioritising these areas of business.

We are seeking a new Chief Constable to build on these achievements. We need someone who will seize opportunities and take on future challenges, providing strong, clear and confident leadership for both the Constabulary and the partners we work with.

You will have a vision for how to improve effectiveness and efficiency and deliver a police service that the public trust and have confidence in. All this against a backdrop of reducing resources.

If you believe you have the qualities we are looking for then we would like to hear from you.
