EAST YORKS: Three candidates hoping to become Humberside Police's new chief constable are today being interviewed by police and crime commissioner Matthew Grove.
The candidates – two men and a woman – will give presentations and be interviewed by Mr Grove and an advisory panel of four people. All are existing chief constables or deputy chief constables.
Mr Grove said he intends to announce who he is chosen to take on the £139,119-a-year role later this week.
The successful candidate will replace the outgoing chief Tim Hollis, who will retire in March after eight years in charge of the force.

HULL: Adults who work with young people across the region will be trained to encourage them to report crime.
The Humberside branch of charity Crimestoppers has funded the training for 30 professionals in Hull.
It will be led by Kristina Gregory, leader of Crimestoppers' youth division, Fearless.
Frank Duffield, chair of Humberside Crimestoppers said: "This is a fantastic opportunity that is being made available to us.
"Many young people are very affected by crime and they can provide helpful and valuable information to Crimestoppers about offences.
"We believe young people are more likely to work with us if they are provided with the best tools and Fearless provides just what young people need.
"We want to ensure young people living in this area know what Fearless is, how it works and how they can access it."
The training is taking place on Thursday at Clough Road police station.
