Cambridgeshire police’s new deputy chief constable has vowed to “listen and talk” to as many residents as possible as he beds into his new job.
Alan Baldwin, formerly assistant chief constable for Thames Valley Police, began his new role in Cambridgeshire on January 4.
He said: “I feel privileged to have this role and am extremely proud to be part of the force. I am keen to build on the great work undertaken to date to deliver the best policing service for the people of Cambridgeshire.
“As ever my focus will be fighting crime and anti-social behaviour, helping victims by bringing offenders to justice and protecting the most vulnerable in society.
“I want to be as visible as I can be and over the coming months will get across the county to meet, listen and talk to as many people as I can to gain a good understanding of the issues we face.
“I have been impressed with the work I have seen in Cambridgeshire already and look forward to us achieving further success in the future.”
Alan joined the police in 1987 shortly after leaving school. He has worked for the MOD Police, West Mercia Police and the Metropolitan Police, before joining Thames Valley Police in 2008.
