Thames Valley Police has appointed a new LPA Commander for Milton Keynes.
Supt Yvette Hitch takes over the role effective today (19/6), replacing Supt Vince Grey who will move to her previous role as the LPA Commander role at Chiltern & South Buckinghamshire.
Supt Hitch was appointed to the role following a senior appointment board. The boards are held regularly to determine postings for senior officers within the force.
Supt Hitch has been a police officer for almost 30 years, having joined Thames Valley Police as a police sergeant in 1997, moving from Staffordshire Police where her policing career began. Prior to her move to Chiltern and South Bucks in 2015, Supt Hitch was the Deputy LPA Commander for Oxford City.
Supt Hitch said: “I am delighted to be the appointed as the Commander of Milton Keynes. I care passionately about Milton Keynes and I am looking forward to working with local partners to reduce crime and disorder and ensuring that MK is a safe place to live and work.”
