Chief Constable, Lee Freeman, said: “I am delighted to have David join Humberside Police. David brings a wealth of experience and I look forward to welcoming him to the force when he arrives in a few weeks’ time.”

Mr Marshall has served in a number of police roles, starting his career at West Yorkshire Police before moving into a variety of leadership roles at Norfolk and is looking forward to getting to know the communities across the whole Humber region.

Mr Marshall commented: ‘‘I am delighted to have been selected to join Humberside as Assistant Chief Constable. Over the last few years, Humberside Police Force has seen a remarkable transformation and I’m looking forward to being part of that journey moving forward.”

He added: “Universally across all staff and partners I have spoken to, what is evident is the pride in what Humberside has achieved with passion and drive to be better. It is a really exciting time for the force, and I am honoured to be joining the team.”
