A new Police Commander has been appointed for the Huntingdonshire area.

Chief Inspector Laura Hunt [pictured] has just taken up the post.

She's meeting with her team, partner agencies and community members to gain a detailed insight on the issues impacting the area.

Chief Inspector Hunt said: "I am very much looking forward to building on the good work of my predecessors and continuing to work with my colleagues, partners and community members to create a safer Huntingdonshire.

I last worked in Huntingdonshire in 2008; to return to the district in which I live and of which I am so fond as the Area Commander is a source of great pride.

My focus is to continue to use all of the tactics available to ensure we target criminals in Huntingdonshire while reducing crime.

Key to all of this work is a locally focused policing team, close partnership work and a good understanding of the key concerns and wishes of the local community".

Chief Inspector Hunt has 19 years' policing experience in exclusively uniform roles, including force custody lead and chief inspector for operations and communities.
