Richard Debicki, who was a Chief Superintendent with the Lancashire Constabulary takes up his role today as Assistant Chief Constable of North Wales Police.

His new role will involve responsibility for the operational portfolio, which includes

  • Local Policing Services
  • Crime Services
  • Control Room
  • Force performance.

Setting out his aims and priorities he said;

“North Wales Police is a force with an excellent track record. Crime has consistently reduced here over recent years, and this is something that the force can be rightly proud of. I intend to do everything I can to address and tackle the crime and issues which are of most concern to the public, which the Police and Crime Commissioner has already put in his plan.

“We need to work hard as an organisation to continue to ensure that the public have confidence in us as a service – essentially people want to be reassured that they will get help when they need it, and that they are able to talk to officers and staff in their community who understand their problems. I place a premium upon excellent quality of service, and believe that this is exactly what people want and deserve.

He added:

“I have spent a lot of time in recent weeks in order to understand the issues and to find out what’s important to local communities. I’m looking forward to working with local people, partners, officers and staff to continue the excellent work that’s already going on here to make North Wales an even safer place.”

Mr Debicki, who is married with two young children, plans to move to the area and has made a commitment to learn Welsh.
