A NEW temporary Chief Constable will be appointed by Lincolnshire Police at the end of the month.
Former Dep Ch Con Neil Rhodes will step into the role when current Ch Con Richard Crompton retires at the end of this month.
Ch Con Rhodes said: “My personal priority will be retaining officers on the beat and PCSOs in the heart of the community.
“In your area your local officers should be known to you, and it’s important you feel confident of a friendly ear and a prompt response when you need to speak to them.”
Alec Wood, who left Lincolnshire Police in 2010 to become Ast Ch Con in Derbyshire, will be seconded back to Lincolnshire as temporary Dep Ch Con.
