The Police and Crime Commissioner for Gwent says although he does have regrets over how the departure of his Chief Constable played out, he stands by his decision to ask her to leave.
Carmel Napier retired in May after Ian Johnston told her if she did not go, he would start official procedures to remove her.
Mrs Napier later gave evidence to MPs claiming she had been bullied into leaving, which Mr Johnston denies.
He claims since her retirement moral in the force has increased “off the richter scale”, but says he regrets how her departure played out.
Newport West Labour MP Paul Flynn says Carmel Napier’s departure is proof that the concept of Police and Crime Commissioners is flawed.
All four Welsh Police and Crime Commissioners have been speaking to ITV Cymru Wales, ten months taking up office..

Police and Crime Commissioner for Dyfed-Powys, Christopher Salmon, says that lessons will be learnt.
