New assistant chief constable for North Yorkshire starts work
A NEW assistant chief constable for North Yorkshire Police is due to begin his role today (Monday, September 2).
Chief Constable Dave Jones appointed Paul Kennedy to the post in July.
Mr Kennedy was previously chief superintendent in charge of organisational support at Cumbria Constabulary and will have responsibility for the operational performance of the North Yorkshire force.
This covers community policing, criminal investigation and operations, which includes roads policing and other specialist units such as firearms support.
The 48-year-old previously served in West Yorkshire Police and South Wales Police in uniform and detective roles. He has led a number of high profile murder investigations and developed policy on mass disaster and child abduction.
He said: “From day one, I promise to do my absolute best to deliver a high-quality policing service to our communities.
"A service that is on hand around the clock to protect people from harm and bring criminals to justice, as well as a caring and supportive service that puts victims first when they need it most.”
He succeeds Iain Spittal, now Deputy Chief Constable of Cleveland Police and takes over from acting assistant chief constable Ken McIntosh.
