Commissioner takes first step to fill chief constable role
4:50pm Monday 4th February 2013 in News
The closing date for applications for Dyfed-Powys Police force’s new chief constable is the middle of this week.
Newly-elected police and crime commissioner, Christopher Salmon, recently announced a recruitment drive to fill the position.
Commissioner Salmon will be the first police and crime commissioner to appoint a chief constable in Wales, since elections to the post in November, last year.
Mr Salmon said: “The chief constable post has been filled in a temporary capacity since last year. This is because recruitment at chief officer ranks was put on hold until after the police and crime commissioner elections.
“I am encouraging applications from officers across the country. This is an exciting opportunity to lead a fantastic police service and an important first step in building the team that will keep us all safe in the coming years.”
The closing date for applications will be February 6th and interviews will be held on February 21st and 22nd.
It is anticipated the commissioner will be in a position to announce the name of the successful candidate sometime in early March, this year.
