Charlie Hall proposed as new Chief Constable
Hertfordshire Police and Crime Commissioner David Lloyd has announced the current Deputy Chief Constable of Norfolk, Charlie Hall, as his preferred candidate for Chief Constable following a rigorous recruitment process.

The news follows an intensive recruitment, assessment and interview process. The role was advertised in the UK and abroad and applicants were subject to a series of pre interviews and tests over the last few weeks before a final selection process which included an engagement session with a range of public, private and third sector partners from Hertfordshire.

The appointment will be subject to a confirmation meeting of the Hertfordshire Police and Crime Panel on the 9th August, the panel of councillors and lay members who scrutinise the work of the Commissioner.

Hertfordshire Police and Crime Commissioner David Lloyd said: “Hertfordshire is a high performing force and has ambitious collaboration programmes with Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire and wider collaboration with forces in the Eastern Region. The next five years will be very challenging and I was looking for an individual who would be a forward-looking and innovative Chief Constable to join and enhance what has been a winning team.  I have recognised these qualities in Charlie Hall and I look forward to presenting him as my chosen candidate to the Hertfordshire Police and Crime Panel next week.”

Charlie Hall said, “I am delighted to have been chosen by the Police and Crime Commissioner as his preferred candidate for Chief Constable of Hertfordshire. There is much that impresses me about the Constabulary and I look forward to working closely with its officers and staff, local communities and partner organisations to further strengthen policing of the county in the years ahead.”
