Building on strong partnerships and reducing rural crime is what Rutland’s new commander is focusing on as she takes on the role.

Inspector Lou Cordiner has replaced former commander, Inspector Kam Mistry and started in her new role on Monday.

Insp Cordiner joined Leicestershire Police in 1993, and for the past four years she served as commander of the tactical dogs and firearms unit at the force’s headquarters in Enderby, Leicestershire.

Prior to this, Insp Cordiner was a fire control room inspector, commanding the police response to incidents in progress.

Insp Cordiner said: “I plan to build on the good work and many strong partnerships that already exist across the county of Rutland.

“Targeting the small number of people who cause the most misery in our communities is central to reducing crime and I will work with Rutland’s safer neighbourhood teams to achieve that end.

“Together we can ensure that the county of Rutland continues to be a safe place to work, live and to visit.”

In addition to her work at headquarters, Insp Cordiner has performed a variety of different roles including; serving as detective inspector for series acquisitive crime; heading up operation target tackling the priority and prolific offenders who commit a disproportionate number of crimes; and as an operational command inspector directing day-to-day operations.

Insp Mistry is moving to force headquarters to work in the contact management department.
