Lincolnshire Police has announced Gary Knighton - currently Assistant Chief Constable with Derbyshire Constabulary - has been selected to replace its current DCC Heather Roach when she retires in April.

Chief Constable Neil Rhodes said: “I am pleased to say that Gary Knighton will be joining us here in Lincolnshire in a few weeks’ time.

“He brings with him a wealth of experience including leading the national portfolio for Criminal Justice performance.

“I am delighted to be able to welcome him to the force and look forward to working with him as part of the Chief Officer Team.

“Heather will be greatly missed by all in Lincolnshire and I know I won’t be the first to say we wish her all the best with her retirement and any future endeavours.”

Police and Crime Commissioner Alan Hardwick said: “I am delighted that Gary Knighton will be joining us here in Lincolnshire.

“He is an experienced ACC and will bring with him a vast amount of knowledge and experience that will be greatly valued by the force. “Policing continues to face challenges and I’m sure Gary will rise to meet those challenges.

“I can only echo the Chief Constable’s comments when I say that the loss of Heather when she retires will be keenly felt by all but we wish her well with everything the future holds.”
