Force’s long-serving officer appointed new ACC
An officer who has served with Nottinghamshire Police for the last 16 years has been appointed the new assistant chief constable.
Steve Cooper joined the force from the Metropolitan Police Service in 2001.
Rising to the rank of chief superintendent, he led policing in Nottingham from 2009 until 2015, when he became responsible for collaboration.
He recently successfully passed through the promotion process, facing a panel of internal and partner agency representatives.
Chief Constable Craig Guildford said: “I am pleased Steve will be joining us as ACC. He has an in-depth knowledge of the force and the region, having served in various roles in operational and organisational policing.
“His experience and skills will certainly complement the chief officer team.
“Steve will be leading the force through transformational change, increasing our efficiency and effectiveness and helping create a workplace where people are empowered and supported to make decisions.”
Mr Cooper said: “I am really pleased to be given this opportunity. I have spent many years here, and have loved every minute of it.
“I am really looking forward to being the ACC and serving the public of Nottinghamshire.”
