PCC looking for ‘visionary’ new Lincolnshire Police Chief Constable

Top job: Lincolnshire Police and Crime Commissioner Alan Hardwick begin recruitment for new Chief Constable.

Lincolnshire Police and Crime Commissioner Alan Hardwick said he is looking for dynamic, ambitious and visionary new Chief Constable for the force.

PCC Hardwick began the recruitment process for the new Lincolnshire Police Chief Constable on October 3.

The current Temporary Chief Constable Neil Rhodes previously said he will be applying for the role.

Chief Constable Rhodes has been in the role since March 2012, when Richard Crompton retired.

The new Chief Constable will have a £131,343 yearly salary, though more may be available for an exceptional candidate, according to the job advert. The appointment would be for four years.

Interviews will be held in late November, with a new Chief Constable appointed probably by the end of the year.

PCC Hardwick and the force have set up a new website, Leading Lincolnshire Police, to help with the recruitment.

“The Chief Constable will be creative and visionary in their approach to the delivery of the Commissioner’s Police and Crime Plan,” the job advert says.

“He or she will need to ensure that the people of Lincolnshire continue to benefit from reducing crime and have access to the police and services when they need them.

“An ability to develop new partnerships, strengthen existing relationships and understand our diverse communities is critical; all the people of Lincolnshire must feel they receive a fair deal from Lincolnshire Police.”
