I read that the new Chief Constable for Devon and Cornwall Police should be in his post next week. He is Stephen Otter from the Avon and Somerset force. I did see him on TV last year after he had been selected for the job and my first impressions were of a fairly young man, very personable and someone with the ambition to sort out the problems he is inheriting. He certainly has a good media presence, something which I think will be a very useful asset in the months to come.
I wish him well and hope he can sort out the problems of morale in the force.
