Corby has a new police commander following the retirement of Inspector Gary Williams last month.
Insp Carl Sturman has taken charge of Corby, moving from a role in the county force’s control room.
He said: “I’ve been with Northamptonshire police since 1986, working in most towns across the county at some point, including seven years in Corby as a constable and sergeant. My last role was with the force control room as Oscar 1.
“I’m very happy to be back in Corby and look forward to working with the public and our partners to continue the great work taking place across the town and rural wards.
“In the last five years Corby has seen massive reductions in crime and anti-social behaviour with fantastic improvements in facilities and infrastructure. The cosmopolitan make-up of the townsfolk has led to increased community cohesion and I’m picking up a real sense of pride in the town and the people.
“We still have a challenging job ahead. Finances are under pressure across all public sectors but together, I’m confident we can meet those challenges and continue to develop Corby as a great place to live and work.”
