The New Chief Constable Of Lincolnshire Announced

With crime increasing, Lincolnshire residents are hoping the new Chief Inspector of Lincolnshire Police will make some drastic changes to reduce crime.


Lincolnshire Police who cover areas including Skegness, Louth, Lincoln, and Boston, has announced the appointment of Paul Gibson as its new Chief Constable.

This appointment comes after the departure of Chris Haward, who has taken up a position with the National Police Chiefs’ Council.

With a career spanning over two decades in law enforcement, Paul Gibson brings a wealth of experience and expertise to his new role.

50-year-old Paul Gibson began his career in Lincolnshire in 1998. Gibson later assumed the role of Assistant Chief Constable at Derbyshire Police, and temporarily served as Chief Constable at Northamptonshire Police.

In 2020, Gibson was initially shortlisted as the preferred candidate for the role of Chief Constable in Lincolnshire. However, on that occasion, Chris Haward was selected for the position. Nevertheless, this time around, Gibson was chosen as the deserving candidate, filling him “with a great sense of pride.”

The decision was made after a thorough evaluation process, including stakeholder panels and interviews. The Lincolnshire Police and Crime Commissioner, Marc Jones, accompanied Gibson during the announcement and expressed his utmost confidence in the selection process, assuring that Gibson is indeed the right candidate for the position.

Paul Gibson’s extensive experience and qualifications make him an ideal choice for the role of Chief Constable.

With his deep understanding of the Lincolnshire region, having been born and raised there, he possesses a unique perspective that aligns with the needs and challenges faced by the community.

Furthermore, his commitment to engaging with the public through various channels and upholding a healthy relationship with the Lincolnshire Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) demonstrates his dedication to delivering the best possible service to the public.

Gibson’s professional approach, combined with his accountability and strong leadership skills, sets a solid foundation for his role as Chief Constable.

The appointment of a new Chief Constable is of immense significance for any police force. It sets the tone for the future direction and priorities of the organization. I

Paul Gibson’s appointment marks a transition in leadership and brings fresh perspective and ideas to the force.

With his diverse experience and understanding of the region, Gibson is well-equipped to address the unique challenges faced by Lincolnshire, ensuring the safety and security of its residents.

The appointment also signifies the commitment of the police force to maintaining a high level of professionalism and public service.

As Gibson assumes his role as Chief Constable, he faces a range of responsibilities and challenges. One of his primary objectives will be to build upon the existing strengths of Lincolnshire Police and further enhance its effectiveness in combating crime and ensuring public safety.

This will involve strategic planning, resource management, and collaboration with various stakeholders, including the police force, the PCC, and the local community. Gibson’s vision for the future includes fostering a professional relationship based on accountability and a shared commitment to delivering the best service possible.

The new Chief Constable said of his appointment: ‍ “I am delighted my appointment is now confirmed and would like to thank the Police and Crime Panel for their endorsement. I am really looking forward to working with PCC Marc Jones to continue the important work of keeping this wonderful county safe,” Mr Gibson said.

“To come back to the county where I was born, and to lead the force where I have invested so much of my professional life in policing, fills me with a great sense of pride”.

It is hoped with a new Chief Constable of Lincolnshire Police that action will be put into place to reduce crime and areas such as Skegness will receive more funding and more police officers patrolling the area.
