Search underway for new police chief

Cambridgeshire Police say the hunt is on for a new, achieving and visionary Chief Constable for Peterborough and Cambridgeshire.

The current Chief Constable, Simon Parr, retires at the end of July, nearly five years after joining the force and after 32 years police service. Deputy Chief Constable Alec Wood will take over as Acting Chief Constable until a permanent appointment is made.

Paying tribute to Mr Parr s leadership of the force, Police and Crime Commissioner Sir Graham Bright told Connect FM: ”Simon has provided excellent leadership over the last five years, adapting the culture of the organisation to embrace new technology, embed new ways of working to deal with the changing face of crime and empowering officers and staff to make decisions.

“I want the new Chief Constable to build on these achievements. At the same time they will need to have the vision to lead the Constabulary to meet new and challenging policing demands in an efficient and effective way.”

Application closing date is 21 July.
