Merseyside’s ACC Jonathan Roy will move over to Staffordshire in December to take up the position of Deputy Chief Constable.

ACC Roy has been in his current role since 2019 and has 29 years’ experience in policing.

He is also responsible for criminal justice at Merseyside and is the NPCC lead for bail.

Chief Constable Chris Noble has welcomed the appointment saying: “I am delighted that Jon will be joining us as Deputy Chief Constable later this year as he will bring considerable skills and experience to Staffordshire.

“He has substantial experience across a wide range of policing areas, is a strong leader and has delivered an impressive range of performance improvements during his time at Merseyside, delivering the very best outcomes for local communities.

“These will be invaluable to this force as we continue to work towards our vision of being an outstanding local police service that cares.”

ACC Jon Roy said: “I’m absolutely delighted, and humbled, to have been selected to the role of Deputy Chief Constable, and I would like to thank the Chief Constable for showing his faith in my ability to make a positive difference.

"Staffordshire Police has a strong reputation, and I am committed to delivering an outstanding police service to the people of the county, working closely with our stakeholders. I can’t wait to join my new colleagues and get started.”
