The acting Deputy Chief Constable of Northamptonshire Police has been given the job on a permanent basis, it has been announced.
Andy Frost started his policing career in Northamptonshire as a patrol officer in Daventry in 1987. He also worked in Northampton and Corby, as well as the Force Control Room, before moving to Bedfordshire Police in 2004 to take on the role of divisional commander.
In 2010, he was promoted to Assistant Chief Constable at Northamptonshire Police. He has been temporary Deputy Chief Constable since the spring, when Martin Jelley moved to Warwickshire Police.
Chief Constable Simon Edens, said: “I am delighted to appoint Andy to the role of Deputy Chief Constable following a recruitment process. It is clear that he knows the force, Northamptonshire and the people we serve extremely well, something I have been very impressed with in my first two weeks in post.”
DCC Frost takes up his new post immediately. He said: “I was thrilled to move back to Northamptonshire five years ago and am pleased to take the next step and become Deputy Chief Constable.
“I am Northampton born and bred and have a real passion for ensuring we provide the best possible police force for the county.”
