Lincolnshire's Police Federation says it hopes the process of selecting a permanent Chief Constable is carried out soon, a day after an independent report cleared Neil Rhodes of any wrongdoing.
Mister Rhodes was suspended by the Police and Crime Commissioner Alan Hardwick back in February over allegations of misconduct. But following a judicial review overturning that decision, an independent report has also now recommended the misconduct allegation be withdrawn.
The Police Federation says it's now time to get stability back at the top of the force - where four people are currently in temporary positions.
