Chief constable receives two-year contract extension
A force has extended its chief constable’s contract as a number of large projects come close to completion.
Civil Nuclear Constabulary (CNC) CEO/Chief Constable Mike Griffiths was due to finish at the force in September 2017 after a five-year term, but his contract has been extended so he can oversee the ongoing Infrastructure Policing programme.
The Civil Nuclear Police Authority (CNPA) senior appointments committee recommended that Mr Griffiths be offered a continuation of contract for two years.
This recommendation was approved by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy Minister Jesse Norman.
Vic Emery, CNPA Chairman, said: “I am very pleased that Mike has agreed to be the CNC’s CEO/Chief Constable for these extra two years and look forward to continuing to work with him. I am sure my colleagues are as pleased about the extension as I am.”
Mr Griffiths added: “The CNC has risen to every challenge it has had given to it, growing in size, capability and operational credibility.
“It has been a great privilege to be part of that success and I am delighted to have two more years at the CNC as we look to consolidate our gains and plan for the future.”
Following a career in the army which spanned more than 30 years, Mr Griffiths joined the CNC in 2012, and as CEO/chief constable he is responsible for the operational performance of the force and improving, developing and maintaining strategic partnerships.
He is also the accounting officer for the CNPA and CNC, in which he ensures financial efficiency and effectiveness.
