North Yorkshire Police chief constable job to pay more than £133,000

First published in News Gazette & Herald: Photograph of the Author by , jennifer.bell@thepress.co.uk

AN INSPIRATIONAL senior officer who is able to go “further in tackling the root causes of crime” could be in line for the top job with North Yorkshire Police.

The search is on for the force’s next permanent chief constable which comes with a £133,068-a-year salary for the four-year fixed term post, with more money for “exceptional candidates” and a potential benefits package.

North Yorkshhire’s first police and crime commissioner, Julia Mulligan, who has the power to hire and fire chief constables vowed her top priority would be finding a new chief when she took on the role last November.

Tim Madgwick, former deputy chief constable, took over from Grahame Maxwell in May in a temporary capacity and then told The Press he would be “throwing my hat in the ring” to have the role permanently.

Mrs Mulligan, who is one of 41 PCCs who replaced police authorities in England and Wales, said she wants to be advised by a number of people experienced in recruitment and selection procedures for senior professionals.

She said she is looking for “a top-level strategic leader” who can help her make a real difference.

Her police and crime plan will focus on:

• Delivering a challenging ‘business as usual’ agenda to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour, to protect the North Yorkshire community, and to deliver more for less

• Working innovatively with partner agencies to re-shape overall strategic approaches to preventing harm within the community

• A people-focused culture and commitment to developing services with people at their heart.

Mrs Mulligan says she is looking for a “highly motivated, vocationally driven senior officer” who will go further in “understanding and tackling the root causes of crime and antisocial behaviour”.

The successful candidate, she said, will inspire the workforce, see things from the perspective of the public and victims, establish personal credibility with politicians and practitioners at the highest level and win the hearts and minds of partner agencies to lead innovative solutions to structural problems.

The deadline for applications is Wednesday, after which a shortlist will be announced the following week.

The current acting CC Tim Madgwick already has the qualifications and credibility required together with experience. He is also local and knows the area and people.He is a vocational, dedicated police officer with integrity and it will be very disappointing if an outsider is appointed.This is the mistake made by the last Police Authority(e.g. Cannings and Maxwell.I hope Mrs Mulligan has learned lessons from that.

41 PCCs and all the staff employed by each PCC. I'm sure it wont be more cost effective and I am sure it will be less transparent than the previous set up. Just another government puppet put in place. Do as I say not as I do!!
The right decision is to make the temporary chief the permanent chief.

The new Chief Constable should be untainted by any former association with the North Yorks Police, currently one of the worst in the country. He should be recruited from outside with experience of a proper police force.

One of the worst? based on? The first post hit the nail on the head.
