I am very sad to hear that Colin Port is standing down as Chief Constable of Avon & Somerset Constabulary. Colin has been an outstanding Chief Constable over the last seven years and we will not find it easy to replace him with a person of such professionalism, integrity and quality of performance.
The new Police and Crime Commissioners will need to work hard to make sure they retain senior officers of high quality so that we don’t lose some of the top performers within our police service.
