Glos PCC's First Day

Martin Surl has spent his first day as Gloucestershire's Police and Crime Commissioner. The former police officer wanted to be out meeting people, rather than in an office.

Meeting the Chief

On his first day in office as Gloucestershire's Police & Crime Commissioner Martin Surl, a former police officer himself, met the force's Acting Chief Constable Mick Matthews.

He is leaving shortly to take up a job with the MOD police in Cyprus, so one of Mr Surl's first jobs will be to appoint a new Chief Constable. In the meantime, Mick Matthews says the new PCC faces a challenging time.
