Suffolk’s Chief Constable Steve Jupp is to leave Suffolk Constabulary in the autumn after three years as chief to take up a new national policing role.

He currently sits on the governance board of the BlueLight Commercial procurement organisation and is the lead for the NPCC Serious & Organised Crime Portfolio having specialised in SOC for much of his policing career which started in the Met

Suffolk Police and Crime Commissioner Tim Passmore, who will now launch the recruitment process to seek a new Chief Constable for the county, said:

“Steve has been an exceptional servant to the whole of Suffolk during his time as Chief Constable.

“Naturally it was with mixed feelings I accepted his resignation. Steve has been an excellent Chief and we have worked together well, but I am very pleased for him personally that his expertise and commitment has been recognised in this prestigious national role.

“I wish Steve the very best of luck and I am confident he will rise to the challenge with great success.”

CC Jupp said: “It has been a real privilege for me to serve alongside all the officers and staff in Suffolk since I came to the Constabulary seven years ago.

“I am immensely proud of everything we have done, and continue to do, to keep all our communities safe. This has never been more evident than in the last two years during what has been an incredibly difficult time for the county, the country and policing.”

He joined the Metropolitan Police in 1987 where he spent the majority of his service tackling serious and organised crime and developing the Metropolitan Police’s current intelligence operating model.

Between 1993 and 1999 he was seconded onto what is now the National Crime Agency, again focussing on serious and organised crime, working internationally, and spent two years working in Spain.

In 1999 he returned to the Met until 2009. During that period, amongst other things, he developed the Metropolitan Police’s response to armed robbery and investigated the London bombings.

In 2009 he transferred to West Midlands Police where, as Head of Crime, he had responsibility for all levels of criminal investigations in the cities of Birmingham, Coventry and Wolverhampton. In 2013 he went to Nottinghamshire Constabulary as an Assistant Chief Constable where he was responsible for crime investigation and reduction.

He has had national responsibility for working with the banking industry to prevent armed robberies and with the Ministry of Justice in the reform of the criminal justice programme, and was the Lead for the National Police Chiefs’ Council Intelligence Portfolio.

He joined Suffolk Constabulary in 2015 as Deputy Chief Constable and became Chief Constable in April 2019.
