Chief Constable confirms 30 years retirement plan

The Chief Constable of Nottinghamshire Police, Julia Hodson, has informed Nottinghamshire Police Authority that she intends to retire on 1st September 2012, on completion of 30 years' police service.

Her decision was formally reported to the Police Authority on Wednesday 21st September, 2011.

Ms Hodson said that she was keen to notify the Authority of her decision in plenty of time.

A recruitment process to select a new Chief Constable for Nottinghamshire will now begin, with the appointment likely to be announced in December 2011.

Jon Collins, Chair of the Police Authority, said: "We are grateful that the Chief Constable has given us plenty of notice of her decision. This will enable us to put appropriate plans in place for a smooth changeover.

"Nationally, this is a time of great change and challenge for policing, but our local residents should be reassured that crime in Nottinghamshire is currently at a 30 year low and is continuing to fall faster than anywhere else in the country. We fully intend to keep it that way."
