Will White has temporarily filled the role since last summer. He first joined the force as a response officer in 1995, giving him 27 years of service to date.

ACC White leads on investigation of serious and organised crime. He has overall responsibility for the Investigations and Operations Directorates, including criminal justice tactical support (roads policing, firearms, dog operations and mounted patrols), intelligence and tasking, and covert operations.

ACC White said: “After 27 years of working for Avon and Somerset Police, I feel extremely privileged to take on this role. I have an incredibly strong sense of connection and commitment to the area, and to the staff and public I am so proud of working with and for.

“I’m looking forward to supporting all our officers and staff in doing the job they joined for, delivering the best possible policing to our local communities.”

ACC White's appointment adds to a new senior management team. Sarah Crew was appointed as Chief Constable last December, while her Deputy Chief Constable Nikki Watson was appointed in January of this year.

Chief Constable Crew said: “Since being appointed I have been clear we must show humility to listen to what the public are telling us, as well as to have courage and empathy at the heart of everything we do.

“I know these are values Will exemplifies in his day-to-day work and he will prove to be a significant asset to Avon and Somerset Police in his new role.”
