Commissioner Welcomes New Chief Constable
Charlie Hall, Hertfordshire’s new Chief Constable, has begun his first day in charge of the county’s force. He was previously the Deputy Chief Constable of Norfolk Police, and brings a wealth of experience to the role.

The Police and Crime Commissioner for the county, David Lloyd, says the new Chief Constable is “forward-looking and innovative” and will be ideally placed to deal with the challenging times ahead.

Hertfordshire Constabulary collaborates with the police forces in Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire in a number of key areas, and Charlie Hall led Norfolk and Suffolk through a similar programme.

David Lloyd says the new chief is a highly experienced and respected police officer: “Hertfordshire is lucky to have a new chief officer of the calibre of Charlie Hall. He’s focused on the true principles of policing – putting community policing at the heart of his plans, and protecting the most vulnerable in society.”

His experience in working with other forces and with the other emergency services will be invaluable, and he understands just how much the public play a role in policing the county, from Special Constables to our volunteers.”

Charlie has the leadership qualities at every level needed to take us forward, and I’m very much looking forward to working with him in the years ahead and wish him every success.”
