Police in Hertfordshire are now answering to a new boss, who took up his post yesterday.
Chief constable Charlie Hall, formerly the number 2 in Norfolk, has replaced Andy Bliss, who announced his retirement from the £159,000/year role in June.
Police and crime commissioner David Lloyd said: “Hertfordshire is lucky to have a new chief officer of the calibre of Charlie Hall. He’s focused on the true principles of policing – putting community policing at the heart of his plans, and protecting the most vulnerable in society.
“His experience in working with other forces and with the other emergency services will be invaluable, and he understands just how much the public play a role in policing the county, from special constables to our volunteers.
“Charlie has the leadership qualities at every level needed to take us forward, and I’m very much looking forward to working with him in the years ahead and wish him every success.”
