Date revealed for Chief Constable’s departure
ESSEX’S new Police and Crime Commissioner has stated his intentions to find a new chief constable.
Jim Barker-McCardle resigned from the position in November - straight after the PCC elections - although he will stay in the role until May 3.
Now the search is on to first his replacement.
Nick Alston, Essex’s PCC, said: “A few weeks ago, Chief Constable Jim Barker-McCardle made clear his intention to step down from the force for personal reasons. Jim and I have now agreed that he will leave Essex Police on May 3, 2013.
“As Police and Crime Commissioner, I have decided that we will start the search for the next Chief Constable of Essex Police with immediate effect. I will be doing my utmost to ensure that Essex has the opportunity to recruit a first class Chief Constable from a range of high calibre candidates.
