Jumping A Grade To Success

A “highly experienced” chief superintendent has jumped the assistant chief constable rank to become a force’s new deputy. Sunita Gamblin  from Derbyshire Constabulary will join Lancashire Constabulary as deputy chief constable in June after only recently passing the Strategic Command Course.

Ms Gamblin has spent the last 27 years at Derbyshire Constabulary, where she joined as a police constable in 1989 and in 2015, she received the Queen’s Police Medal.

She will take over from Deputy Chief Constable Andy Rhodes when he takes up the chief constable role. Ms Gamblin said “I’m thrilled and looking forward to working in Lancashire. I owe a huge debt of gratitude to many people, but in particular I would like to thank Derbyshire Chief Constable Mick Creedon for all his advice and support.”

Lancashire Police and Crime Commissioner Clive Grunshaw is looking forward to working with Sunita as part of Andy Rhodes’ team once he takes up his post as Chief Constable for Lancashire. He’s confident that the Constabulary continues to have the quality of leadership necessary to deliver his police and crime plan and to maintain its place as one of the best performing forces in the country.”
