Gwent Police looking for Deputy Chief Constable

South Wales Argus: Gwent Police looking for Deputy Chief Constable Gwent Police looking for Deputy Chief Constable

APPLICATIONS are being taken for a new Deputy Chief Constable for Gwent – with a six-figure salary for the successful candidate.

The Police and Crime Commissioner for Gwent is advertising for a “talented, enthusiastic and innovative” individual to join a small but influential team of chief officers.

The role came up after Jeff Farrar, who held the position of deputy from April 2011, was appointed as Chief Constable following the controversial retirement of Carmel Napier.

Her departure was confirmed in June 2013, after 30 years of service to the force.

The Argus exclusively revealed that the Gwent Police and Crime commissioner, Ian Johnston had told Mrs Napier to retire or be removed, after the contents of Mr Johnston’s memorandum were leaked to the newspaper.

The role will have a salary of £110,880 per year, plus a relocation package.

The closing date for applications is Friday, January 31, before the shortlist is announced on Wednesday, February 5.

If the Gwent Constabulary really wanted to save money why bother in appointing a deputy and having an assistant chief constable. Why not amalgamate the two positions and get rid of some more senior ranks and administrative positions and put more real police officers back on the streets of Gwent? .

Although I'm sure the ACC and DCC hold different responsibilities, as above, like other public sector roles, these can probably be combined. Think of the front desk desk staff that can be reemployed with £110k. The same can be said for the deputy PCC. I really don't know why forces need one of those with the other staff that PCC offices have employed!!
