Letter from Rupert Matthews – Police and Crime Commissioner for Leicestershire and Rutland
Chief Constable, Leicestershire Police
Following the outstanding period of leadership from Simon Cole QPM, it is now time to turn our heads to the future for Leicestershire Police. I am looking to recruit a high calibre leader as the new Chief Constable, someone who will be able to build upon the success of the past so that the force remains as one of the top performing ones in the country.
The Leicestershire Police force area covers a highly diverse region encompassing a city and two counties. These include market towns, former mining villages, thinly populated rural landscapes and densely populated urban centres. Our population is as diverse as our landscapes, there are pockets of real deprivation across our area, mixed with affluent areas. Similarly, the educational attainment, cultural background and lifestyles vary greatly. Each has its own policing challenges and opportunities. As Chief Constable, you will be expected to be adaptable to local conditions while developing resilient and mutually beneficial partnerships, work in collaboration with other stakeholders and be able to inspire our communities to build trust and confidence in our police.
Criminals are more sophisticated than ever before, they know no boundaries as far as their criminal activities are concerned, and as technology continues to evolve, society and the police service face different and more complex challenges. Crime can be perpetrated from anywhere in the world and can have an impact upon the most vulnerable in our communities. I am looking for a Chief Constable who not only recognises these complexities but will think outside the box to find innovative ways to mobilise colleagues so that they are equipped and motivated to deal with these modern-day challenges.
The next Chief Constable of Leicestershire Police, must have a proven track record in delivering high quality organisational performance, be an influential strategic leader who has led a highly motivated workforce and will create a positive and professional culture.
I hope to attract a diverse and high-quality field of applicants from across the UK and will be looking to have a new Chief Constable appointed by November this year.
