Notts Police has appointed a replacement deputy chief constable for when DCC Paul Scarrott retires later this year.

Assistant chief constable Sue Fish, who was awarded the OBE for services to policing in 2008, said she was ‘very proud’ to be stepping into her new role, 27 years after she first joined the force.

She said: “I’m very proud, excited and humbled to be given this opportunity. I’ve spent much of my service in Notts and am absolutely committed to its success and it will be a real privilege to serve as the force’s deputy chief constable.”

“Despite the challenging times policing finds itself in, Notts is fortunate to have some very exceptional people and I have no doubt that we will continue our progress towards becoming the best force in the county.”

Chief constable Chris Eyre said: “I am thrilled for Sue. Her experience, both here and recently on secondment with ACPO and the Met, will allow her to build on the work that Paul Scarrott has been doing.”

Mrs Fish joined Nottinghamshire Police in 1986 as a constable, working in a variety of uniform and detective roles.
