The West Yorkshire Police and Crime panel has elected John Robins QPM as the force's new Chief Constable.

Mr Robins, who has 29 years of policing experience, has worked in a variety of ranks and roles and says he's looking forward to reducing crime and protecting vulnerable people.

I am extremely proud and honoured to be the next Chief Constable of West Yorkshire Police. Having spent my whole policing service in West Yorkshire, this is the culmination of an incredible and fulfilling journey for me from Police Constable to Chief Constable. My enthusiasm for policing and for West Yorkshire is as keen today, as it was on the first day I joined.

I am looking forward to continuing to work with our Police and Crime Commissioner to keep our communities’ safe and feeling safe, by reducing crime, protecting vulnerable people and providing reassurance to all of our communities.
