THE new Chief Inspector for North Somerset police has taken up her post.
Former Chief Insp Alex Cohen left policing altogether in April and was replaced by Temporary Chief Insp Stuart Bell.
But now Tina Robinson has taken the top job and become area commander.
She said: “I’m really excited to be returning to lead the team policing North Somerset. I know the area well, having worked here for much of my service and also living in North Somerset.
“My priority is to make sure the area remains a safe place for the people who live and work here and those who visit.”
Tina joined Avon and Somerset police in 1994, working on patrol teams responding to emergencies across North Somerset before transferring to the criminal investigation department (CID). She continued to work in the area as a detective for five years.
In January 2003 she was promoted to sergeant, leading a uniformed patrol team in Bristol, and the following year she transferred to work at Southmead.
In 2005 she returned to Weston as a Detective Sergeant leading the crime management unit.
Between 2006 and 2008 Tina returned to CID and also spent time working in special branch.
In 2012 she was promoted to Detective Inspector and acted as a temporary Detective Chief Inspector in the same unit.
This year Tina was promoted to Chief Inspector on her appointment as North Somerset Area Commander.
