Mark Stokes, currently Deputy Chief Executive at Breckland and South Holland District Council, will take over from Chris Harding who is retiring at the end of the year.
“I am absolutely delighted that the Panel has confirmed its recommendation that I appoint Mark. I strongly believe that Mark is the right person to lead my office forward, and the partners who interviewed him with me were equally convinced”, Stephen said.
“It is excellent to now get this recommendation from the Police and Crime Panel, and I look forward to Mark taking up his post on 21 October.”
