Superintendent Adam Gallop – who is a familiar face from crime series 24 Hours in Police Custody – is now area commander for Huntingdonshire. 

Supt Gallop took over the role for the district along with the south of Cambridgeshire earlier this month. 

His career began at Parkside Police Station 25 years ago and has seen him work in a variety of roles including neighbourhood policing, intelligence, public protection, covert operations and most recently in the major crime unit. 

A spokesperson for Cambridgeshire Police said: “Adam’s focus will include arresting the most dangerous people in the community, responding to incidents and crimes efficiently to ensure swift possible outcomes and safeguarding vulnerable people.” 

Supt Gallop was at the centre of the investigation surrounding missing Wisbech man Ricardas Puisys, who was found alive in July 2020 after five years. The story was documented on Channel 4’s 24 Hours in Police Custody.
