Assistant Chief Constable Russ Foster, who has recently joined Northamptonshire Police, has assumed responsibility for ensuring the delivery of the recommendations set out in the HMIC report.
I am confident that the joint action plan will ensure that each of the recommendations made will be delivered prior to the anticipated re-inspection by HMIC in the autumn of 2013.
However, any transformational change takes time to fully embed and work as efficiently and effectively as possible.
I will take personal responsibility for continually monitoring and reviewing progress to maximise opportunities to protect children at risk living in our communities.
