North Yorkshire top cop bows-out
5:00pm 1st February 2011
Deputy Chief Constable, Adam Briggs, has requested to retire.
He's going to leave this Sunday (6th February 2011).
Mr Brigg was recently disciplined for misconduct after being investigated over allegations he assisted a relative during force recruitment drive a year ago.
In a statement the Police Authority haven't mentioned if that's linked to today's announcement about his retirement.
Jane Kenyon, Chairman of the Authority, has told Minster FM:
"Adam Briggs has been a fine Police Officer during his 31 years' service. His contribution has been respected and valued by the communities he has served in Cleveland, West and North Yorkshire".
'We wish Adam well in his retirement."
Mr. Briggs joined North Yorkshire Police in June 2007 and over the last three years the Force has enjoyed a significant reduction in crime, people killed and seriously injured on the roads and anti-social behaviour.
DCC Briggs said:
"I am fortunate to have enjoyed a great career with the Police Service and I wish to express my respect to the men and women whom I have so enjoyed serving with.
They work hard every day, both Police Officers and Police Staff serving our communities with distinction. They deliver an excellent service, whatever the weather, the challenges and threats they face. I am proud to have served with them".
