The new Chief Constable of Lincolnshire Police has started work with the force today.
Bill Skelly has moved from Devon and Cornwall Police where he was Deputy Chief Constable.
Mr Skelly said it was an immense pleasure and privilege to be the new Chief Constable of Lincolnshire.
He accepted that it would not be all plain sailing and there would be challenges ahead, “not only on the financial front but the things we feel passionately about in serving and looking after the public and delivering a service we can be proud of. I really look forward to serving with this very proud force.”
When not on duty Bill Skelly, who is married with two daughters, likes to spend his time outdoors, enjoying hill walking and cycling and is an avid volleyball player. He is the chair of the Police Sport UK Volleyball Section and has reached the personal milestone of playing as a member of the Great Britain Police Team.
