"Having now served for a total of sixteen years in South Yorkshire and Humberside Police, it will be satisfying to retain a link with both areas in my new role.
"I look forward to working with the ACF permanent staff and volunteers who provide invaluable support and training to young people. I will particularly enjoy visiting the training bases to meet the young cadets.
"These are difficult times and young people benefit from the guidance and encouragement the ACF team provide. The Cadets’ developing skills and self confidence will be a real asset to them as they make their way as citizens in the future."
