THE temporary chief constable at Avon and Somerset Constabulary is retiring after leading the force since its previous chief was suspended. A new deputy chief constable has also been appointed. Temporary Deputy Chief Constable Gareth Morgan has been appointed to the role permanently. His predecessor, John Long, became acting chief constable in May 2014 when chief constable Nick Gargan was suspended. The latter has now returned to work after being found guilty of misconduct and Acting Chief Constable Long has announced he will retire in August. He said: “I have loved my time at Avon and Somerset police. It’s been a massively fulfilling part of my policing career. “I shall retire with many happy memories but in the full knowledge that I leave behind an incredible group of people who I know will continue to provide an excellent service.” Acting Chief Const. Long chaired the panel which appointed Deputy Chief Constable Morgan and said: “I’m delighted we’ve been able to appoint such an experienced and respected individual into this important post. During the months Gareth has been temporarily working with the constabulary he has clearly shown a passion and an interest in the lives of our communities and how we can keep them safe.” He used to lead a major project establishing a public protection department for West Midlands Police and in July 2012 he was appointed as assistant chief constable for local policing for Warwickshire Police and West Mercia Police. The appointment comes shortly after the new Chief Inspector for North Somerset, Tina Robinson, took up her post.
