pleased to announce that, following an open recruitment process,
Deputy Chief Constable Simon Bailey has been selected as his
preferred choice of Chief Constable for Norfolk.

Mr Bailey s nomination will now be referred to the Police and
Crime Panel for confirmation at their meeting on 25 October

Mr Bett said, I am delighted to nominate Simon Bailey as my
preferred candidate as Chief Constable. He has proved himself to be
highly competent in all his ACPO roles to date. I am confident that
Simon is the right person to take the Norfolk Constabulary forward
in these challenging times.

He is an excellent leader and I will
look to him to ensure that Norfolk remains an exemplary force
driving through efficiencies and economies whilst keeping us in
good shape for the future and maintaining the county as one of the
safest counties in England.

I hope that the Police & Crime
Panel will endorse my choice.

preferred candidate for the role of Chief Constable and look
forward to the opportunity to address the Police and Crime Panel
