Nottinghamshire’s Chief Constable Craig Guildford and Police and Crime Commissioner Paddy Tipping have today responded to a national report into police leadership from Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire & Rescue Services.

Chief Constable Craig Guildford said: “The findings of the HMICFRS report show progress in leadership across policing. This year we have introduced an annual timetable for recruitment and promotion opportunities, with full staff association oversight, increasing transparency. We are actively pursuing talent with graduates and apprentices from our communities and continue to support personal development with secondments to regional and national units. We also have a good track record of bringing on home-grown talent through our fast-track programmes.

"We have just commissioned supervisory training to bolster the capabilities of our Sergeant rank and police staff equivalent, and we work closely with all the staff associations to promote wellbeing and support our officers and staff, looking towards their mental and physical health.

“I am pleased with the progress we have made, and remain committed to fair and ethical leadership, to ensure we are an employer of choice for those working for Nottinghamshire Police.”

Paddy Tipping, Police and Crime Commissioner, added:  “Strong and inspirational leadership at every level is vital to the success of any organisation.  Since this time last year, Nottinghamshire Police has seen a new chief officer team in post, leading from the front.  I am confident that we have the right strategies and people in place to guide, mentor and provide solutions to the increasingly complex policing challenges we face. “When we have advertised for people to join us we have had a good field which reflects well on Nottinghamshire Police.  My new Police and Crime Plan, which comes into effect in April, illustrates that we have sound plans in place for the future, which includes more officers and increased capacity to tackle key policing issues.” 

101 is the number to call when you need to contact Nottinghamshire Police and it’s less urgent than a 999 call. Calls cost 15p, no matter how long the call lasts.
