Police chief will move on

Have your say

THE chief constable of Hampshire police has been appointed by another force.

Andy Marsh was confirmed to take up the same role at Avon and Somerset police yesterday following a police and crime panel meeting.

Mr Marsh is to start in his new position on February 1 next year.

In a statement released last week, he said he was moving back to Avon and Somerset to be with his family.

Mr Marsh said: ‘It’s been an honour to serve as the chief constable of Hampshire Constabulary and I’m extremely proud of what we achieved together during my time there.’
