Hertfordshire's Police and Crime Commissioner Chief Executive moving on
Commissioner David Lloyd has accepted reluctantly the resignation of his Chief Executive, Andrew White.

Andrew White became Chief Executive of the former Hertfordshire Police Authority in 2007 and saw through the process of the introduction of Police and Crime Commissioners in 2012 in the same role.

Andrew said: “I had been looking to move on from the world of police governance since before the November election. I agreed with the Commissioner that I would stay on to settle in the new structures. That initial period is now over - the budget has been set and the plan is drafted. David Lloyd has set out a very ambitious programme that will really make a difference to the people of Hertfordshire.

“I will miss working with David, my team and the Constabulary but I proud to be leaving at a time when performance is really strong, finances are in a good shape and a clear path is set for the future."

Commissioner Lloyd thanked Andrew White for his commitment over the past six years, during which Mr White also worked with the Commissioner as a member and then Chairman of the police authority.

He said: “Andrew has been a great driving force for embedding the new policing reforms in Hertfordshire. Having led an excellent support team for the police authority, Andrew has been a pivotal figure in establishing the office that I now occupy. His contribution and stewardship during the transition period meant that I was able to really hit the ground running. I wish him well for the future.”

 Further information regarding the appointment of a new Chief Executive is expected early next week and a news release will be issued
