Deputy PCC Appointed
Stuart Tweedale has today been appointed as Deputy Police and Crime Commissioner for Lincolnshire.
Making the appointment, Police and Crime Commissioner Marc Jones said, “I am grateful for the Police and Crime Panel’s involvement in Stuart’s appointment. It is regrettable that due to restrictions within the legislation, the Panel were placed in a very difficult position of passing judgement on Stuart’s suitability based on the narrowest of criteria which do not include the key aspects required to excel in a role which I know he will.
“During the election period I was honest with the public about my intention to appoint a Deputy. Stuart will be a vital and visible part of my proactive crime prevention agenda, overseeing rural issues as well as leading on community engagement work to ensure that people of all ages from across the whole county have an input into the type of policing they receive. Stuart is already concentrating on getting on with the role.”
Deputy Police and Crime Commissioner Stuart Tweedale said, “I’m excited to be starting work. I look forward to very quickly getting out and about and hearing what the public want from their police service.”
