Police and Crime Commissioner Barry Coppinger has highlighted the value of neighbourhood policing in Cleveland, as he launches recruitment for a new Chief Constable today.
Mr Coppinger is looking for an outstanding candidate with the enthusiasm, vision and passion to shape the future of Cleveland Police and the drive to ensure the Force becomes – and remains – an outstanding police service. As well as being an inspirational leader and communicator, they should have a track record in delivering step change in public satisfaction, ethics and integrity.
On the relationship he expects to have with the Chief, Mr Coppinger says that his expectations are high for a relationship which is challenging and robust as well as supportive and facilitative, with a common purpose of delivering the commitments of his Police and Crime Plan.
The PCC has provided candidates with an information pack containing information about the Cleveland area and the fantastic opportunity on offer for applicants keen to serve Cleveland as the area’s new Chief.
So proud is the PCC of the Cleveland area, prospective candidates will have the opportunity to join the PCC on a full tour of local communities and key locations.
Police and Crime Commissioner for Cleveland, Barry Coppinger, said: “The Cleveland area is a truly great place to live and work. As PCC I am committed to making Cleveland an ever-safer place and this is a fantastic opportunity for a Chief Constable who shares this ambition to join me.
“The Force is undergoing a period of cultural and organisational transformation to more effectively reflect the diverse communities it serves and to become and remain an employer of choice for all who wish to thrive in a policing career. It’s crucial that the new Chief Constable can continue to implement these positive changes, by showing their commitment to the Everyone Matters programme and the transformation of our approach to the very best of police standards and ethics.
“Significant pressures on the service nationally make this a challenging time to be a Chief Constable. I absolutely want our Chief to be someone who can turn these difficult circumstances into opportunities and lead our police force to an outstanding future.
“The new Chief will share my focus of achieving a better deal for victims and be committed to delivering results by collaboration with a strong neighbourhood policing presence.
