Lincolnshire Police recruiting new deputy chief constable

Lincolnshire Police are recruiting a new deputy chief constable ahead of the planned retirement of Keith Smy.

The £110,000 per year role is being advertised on the force’s website.

The force is seeking “ambitious senior police officers who are ready to take on the role of deputy chief constable and in due course to aspire to a chief constable position.”

There is also a requirement to be contactable 24 hours per day when not on leave or in the absence of a designated deputy.

The successful candidate will be expected to take up the role in September.

Under new regulations, the deputy chief constable will be required to undertake an annual fitness test and live within one hour travel time from force headquarters in Nettleham.

A housing allowance or transitional housing allowance will be paid if appropriate, along with a car and phone, among other benefits.

Keith Smy, the Deputy Chief Constable, will retire this year after working for Lincolnshire Police since 2009.
