New chief constable Police and Crime Commissioner welcomed

Police and Crime Commissioner Donna Jones has welcomed Scott Chilton as the new chief constable of Hampshire and Isle of Wight Constabulary.

Police and Crime Commissioner Donna Jones said: “I am delighted to welcome Scott Chilton as the new chief constable of Hampshire and the Isle of Wight Constabulary. “Scott has extensive experience as a senior police officer having already been a chief in Dorset and I am really pleased to be welcoming him back to his home force to lead the Constabulary into a new era. “Scott and I have a shared vision for policing and it starts with strengthening and developing neighbourhood policing. As Commissioner and with Scott’s support, I have already committed to reintroducing named local bobbies for every community by April 2024. “Together we want to make Hampshire and the Isle of Wight the safest places to live, work and visit, supported by strong, traditional local policing teams which connect and support communities to reduce crime. "As Commissioner, I know that driving down the crimes that matter the most to the public, increasing police visibility in neighbourhoods, and creating a force that is tough on crime to bring offenders to justice is what the public rightly expect and I am confident Scott will lead the Constabulary with these ambitions at the very core of his leadership.”
