A senior Merseyside Police officer from Counter Terrorism Policing North West (CTPNW) is to join the Civil Nuclear Constabulary (CNC) as assistant chief constable.
Louise Harrison, currently Strategic Regional Lead Officer within CTPNW, has 27 years’ experience in policing, during which time she has undertaken a variety of uniformed and specialist-based roles.
At Merseyside Police she had previously been a Strategic Firearms Commander and also the Local Policing Commander for the St Helens. Early in her policing career Ms Harrison served as a front-line authorised firearms officer and a sergeant in the mounted section, among other roles.
CNC Chief Constable Simon Chesterman said: “Louise is a highly respected police officer and has a reputation for having an inclusive style of leadership, which will suit the CNC. I am delighted that such a high calibre officer has chosen to join the CNC and I am very much looking forward to working with her.”
Ms Harrison said: “I am delighted to have been given this opportunity to join the CNC. I had some experience of working with CNC police officers in my previous role during Operation Temperer and I was impressed with their professionalism and positive attitude. The CNC is a great organisation and I look forward to helping the force achieve its ambitions.”
