Bedfordshire Police Chief Constable selection – public panel

Live video below

Candidates for the role of Bedfordshire Police’s chief constable will face a public panel in what’s thought to be the first ever interview process of its kind to select a new police chief constable.

The candidates are:

  • Richard Martin – Deputy Assistant Commissioner for the Metropolitan Police
  • Jackie Sebire – Assistant Chief Constable of Bedfordshire Police
  • Garry Forsyth – Deputy Chief Constable of Bedfordshire Police

Bedfordshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner, Kathryn Holloway, has invited members of the public and the Bedfordshire Police workforce to attend a public panel that is forming part of the new chief constable’s selection process.

The new Chief Constable will replace Jon Boutcher who is standing down in July.

This part of the selection process will also be live streamed below from 2pm.
