Search for New Chief Constable for Humberside Police

Humberside Police

6:10pm 10th December 2012

Humberside Police and Crime Commissioner Matthew Grove has advertised for a new Chief Constable to replace Tim Hollis, who retires in the new year.

Commenting on the decision, Matthew said:

“Under Tim Hollis’ leadership the Humberside force has moved from a difficult place in engagement with the Policing Standards Unit to one that is now respected and regularly punches above its weight. I have no doubt that the single most important decision I will make during my term in office will be to appoint Tim’s successor. Make no mistake whoever comes in has big boots to fill. We are in a situation where a number of Commissioners across the country have to find a new Chief Constable. I want to make sure Humberside is at the front of the talent queue which is why I have advertised for a new Chief at the earliest possible opportunity.

I have big aspirations to improve the lives of local people and one of my first steps is to appoint a new Chief Constable who shares my ambition, values and commitment. Someone who will have ambition to improve the service at a time when resources are reducing. Someone who is open to seizing opportunities to create new ideas, share services and improve outcomes for local people.”
