Devon and Cornwall PCC expects swift Chief Constable appointment

Newly elected Police Crime Commissioner for Devon and Cornwall has announced that a permanent appointment of a Chief Constable will be made as soon as possible.

The Chief Constable will be pivotal in ensuring that the strategic vision to tackle crime in Devon, Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly is carried out day-to-day. I believe that my role as Commissioner and that of the Chief Constable has to be to provide strong leadership and work as a team. That relationship is key to serving people in this area and we will only achieve our aims by working closely together.I have met with Temporary Chief Constable Shaun Sawyer and we have agreed that it is in everyone’s interests that a permanent appointment is made at the earliest possible opportunity.
