Deputy steps in for Suffolk’s sick Chief Constable
Suffolk’s Deputy Chief Constable Gareth Wilson is to serve as Temporary Chief Constable while Chief Constable Douglas Paxton is off sick.
Tim Passmore, Suffolk Police and Crime Commissioner, said: “The Chief Constable is currently off sick and is likely to be for the foreseeable future.
“To help provide further resilience, former Assistant Chief Constable Tim Newcomb is currently providing short-term support to the Chief Officer Team whilst we work to secure a temporary Deputy Chief Constable to cover Gareth’s substantive post.
“I’d like to take this opportunity to wish Douglas well in his recovery.”
