Warwickshire Police has selected a new Deputy Chief Constable. Richard Moore takes up the post with immediate effect, having served as Temporary DCC since the retirement of previous DCC Karen Manners in August.
Richard joined Warwickshire Police and West Mercia Police as Assistant Chief Constable in June 2017 having spent 25 years previously with West Midlands Police. He was selected for his new position from an able field of candidates in a rigorous selection process, which included contributions from staff, key stakeholders such as myself and partner organisations.
I'm delighted at Richard’s appointment, which is well deserved. He has made a significant contribution to developing strong relationships with partners in Warwickshire since he joined the force last year.
In what is a critical role for any force, I'm pleased we will be able to benefit from the continuity and familiarity with the county that Richard brings, as well as his broad experience of policing, including from other parts of the region.
