Deputy is preferred candidate for top police job

Andy Marsh, deputy chief constable of Hampshire Constabulary, has been selected as preferred candidate for chief constable.

THE new police and crime commissioner for Hampshire and the Isle of Wight has selected his preferred candidate for chief constable.

Commissioner Simon Hayes has selected Andy Marsh, currently deputy chief constable of Hampshire Constabulary, for the role.

He chose Mr Marsh following a two-day interview process involving senior representatives from organisations across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight, including independent Island member Liz Mackenzie.

"There were four strong candidates to choose from but throughout the whole process Andy Marsh demonstrated to me he is the right man to lead the force. He shares my vision for the future and has the ability to inspire officers and staff to deliver my priorities and to make Hampshire and the Isle of Wight an even safer place," he said.

Mr Hayes will go before the Hampshire Police and Crime Panel on Friday (January 25) at the council chamber of Hampshire County Council, which will decide whether or not to approve his selection.

Mr Marsh joined Hampshire Constabulary as deputy chief constable in July, 2010, having previously worked at Avon and Somerset Police and Wiltshire Police.
