Issued by the Police and Crime Commissioner for North Yorkshire

Julia Mulligan, Police and Crime Commissioner for North Yorkshire, has decided to re-advertise for the post of Chief Constable of North Yorkshire Police.

This follows a selection process yesterday when a number of initial candidates were interviewed for the post.

Julia Mulligan said: “My Assessment Panel and I undertook a comprehensive and exhaustive assessment process yesterday where a range of highly talented candidates displayed many strengths and aptitudes for the role. However, I am determined to ensure that the public gets the best possible person to lead North Yorkshire Police and hence I want to test the market again.

“I have therefore decided to re-advertise the post. Yesterday’s candidates will be welcome to re-apply, if they so wish and I am still confident of making an appointment as soon as practically possible.”
