The Police and Crime Commissioner has today begun the recruitment process to appoint Surrey’s next Chief Constable. Applications are sought from qualified candidates who are committed to continuing to drive down crime, enhancing services for victims, increasing police visibility and tackling new and emerging operational challenges.
The appointment of a Chief Constable is the one of the key responsibilities for a Police & Crime Commissioner.
The closing date for applications is 29th April, with interviews scheduled to take place after the forthcoming PCC elections on 5th May.
Mr Hurley said:
“In the interests of democracy and fairness to whomever the PCC may be post-May, I have decided that the short-listing and selection of candidates should take place after the PCC elections. However, given the critical importance of the role, it is sensible to ensure that the appointment can be made as swiftly after the elections as possible.
“Surrey Police needs the very best person to lead the Force through a period of significant change in a climate of financial challenge and I welcome applications from people with a real passion for policing. Until such point as this process is finalised, I have every confidence in Nick Ephgrave’s ability as Temporary Chief Constable.”
