Search for new chief constable

By a County Press reporter

Wednesday, December 5, 2012

 

THE new police and crime commissioner is spearheading the search for a new chief constable for Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.

Simon Hayes said: "I am looking for a strong and charismatic leader, someone who can continually push to reduce crime, prevent re-offending, and have the ability to encourage the force and organisations in the community to do so in partnership."

The current chief constable, Alex Marshall, is leaving the force in February to become the first chief executive of the new College of Policing.

Mr Hayes has started the search less than three weeks after being elected as commissioner and hopes to name his preferred candidate by the end of January.

The Hampshire and Isle of Wight force will be one of the first areas in the country to appoint a chief constable under the new system.

The commissioner said he was conscious of the current financial climate and the minimum salary of £146,521 was at the lower end of the range.
