WEST Mercia Police and Crime Commissioner John Campion has nominated Anthony Bangham to become West Mercia’s next Chief Constable.

Mr Bangham has served as the force’s Deputy Chief Constable since 2014. His appointment is subject to confirmation by the West Mercia Police and Crime Panel.

“The force is undergoing a major and necessary programme of modernisation that will benefit our communities as well as its officers and staff,” said Mr Campion.

“It needs an exceptional Chief Constable to lead that transformation; inspiring the force, setting the right strategic path, delivering major projects and accelerating the pace of positive change. Anthony is aware of the expectations that come with the role.

“He is committed to delivering the results West Mercia requires and I am pleased to be able to nominate him for this new challenge.”
