Nick Dean has served 31 years as a police officer, five of which have been in Cambridgeshire, where he became chief constable in September 2018.

He said it has been “an immense honour” to work in Cambridgeshire Constabulary “with the officers, staff and volunteers, who make the organisation run so efficiently on a daily basis”.

“I have been part of some significant changes during my time in office, including leading the force through the uplift programme, resulting in us employing the highest number of officers in the constabulary’s history,” said Mr Dean.

“I have had the privilege to serve in two police forces and I have done some amazing things throughout my policing career which could never be replicated in any other job.”

Mr Dean joined Norfolk Constabulary in September 1992, serving in both uniform and crime investigation roles.

He was appointed temporary assistant chief constable in Norfolk in June 2013 and made substantive assistant chief constable in May 2016.

He was promoted deputy chief constable in February 2017 and joined Cambridgeshire Constabulary as chief constable in September 2018.

For the past three years he has been the National Police Chief’s Council lead for forensics and charging.
