A new Superintendent has taken up post in King’s Lynn and West Norfolk to command policing across the district.
Superintendent Dennis Lacey will be the local police chief for the borough and leading all local policing teams across the area.
Supt Lacey, who may be a familiar face to many in the area, joins the west from the force-wide Criminal Investigations Directorate where he led a team undertaking investigations.
Dennis has been with Norfolk Constabulary in a variety of roles for 27 years including a spell as King’s Lynn North Inspector in 2008 and a time as Local Policing Commander for Norwich City Centre. He brings a wealth of experience and local knowledge to his new role and aims to build on the successful work already carried out in the district.
Supt Lacey said that reducing threats in our community will be his main aim: “I am very pleased to have taken up this new role and I look forward to the opportunity to work across both rural and urban areas within the district. As we move forward working together with agencies across the area will be key and I look forward to continuing to develop the strong relationships that already exist within the west.
“My main aim is that all residents feel safe and secure in the area that they live. We will continue to tackle those who cause harm in our community and strive to drive down crime in all areas.”
The new appointment means that Supt Lacey has taken over from Supt Carl Edwards, who has retired from the force.
