Cumbria Constabulary has appointed a new Assistant Chief Constable (ACC) to its Chief Officer team.

Mark Webster has joined the force this month, taking over the role from Temporary Assistant Chief Constable Sean Robinson, who has retired from policing.

ACC Webster has transferred to Cumbria from the National Crime Agency, where he was Director of Intelligence and Operations and the lead for several national campaigns.

T/ACC Sean Robinson was an extremely valued member of the Cumbria policing team throughout his 27 years of service, and everyone at the Constabulary wishes him well for the future.

I am very pleased to now welcome Mark Webster, who has an exceptional background in many different areas of policing. He will be a great asset to our Chief Officer team, and to the Constabulary as a whole.”

– Chief Constable, Jerry Graham

Mark has also served at Greater Manchester Police, which he joined in 1992.

Having been a regular visitor to Cumbria over many years, I now feel extremely honoured and excited to be working here.

Since arriving, I have encountered many hard-working officers and partners who are clearly dedicated to making Cumbria a safe place to live. I believe my former experience with Greater Manchester Police and the National Crime Agency will help me continue to enhance Cumbria Constabulary’s focus on protecting people."

– Assistant Chief Constable, Mark Webster
