New Chief Constable takes to the streets

Bringing down crime and improving trust and confidence are the main priorities for Mark Polin, the new Chief Constable for North Wales.

Mr Polin, who started in his new role today (Monday 2 November) said that his immediate priorities were to get to know the area and understand the local communities, whilst working towards the vision of a safer North Wales.

He said: "I intend to build on the existing strengths of the organisation. I'm joining a good organisation, which has a loyal and committed workforce. Our fundamental priority it to improve safety and inspire confidence."

The 46-year-old father-of-two was previously the Deputy Chief Constable of Gloucestershire.

"I look forward to working with my colleagues, members of the Police Authority and our partners to ensure that North Wales becomes even safer for those who work, live and visit the area".

Cllr Ian Roberts, Chair of the North Wales Police Authority, said: "North Wales Police is one of the most efficient and effective forces in the UK and we are confident that we have picked the right person to take North Wales Police to the next level.

"Mark Polin brings a huge amount of experience and expertise to the role of Chief Constable."

"The Police Authority is looking forward to working with him to build on some already firm foundations so that we can make North Wales an even safer place to live."
