PCC puts plans to appoint a deputy on hold

Alison Hernandez' response following police and crime panel decision.

Police and Crime Commissioner Alison Hernandez has put plans to appoint a deputy on hold after the Police and Crime Panel voted not to confirm Mark Kingscote in the role.

“I am disappointed that the Panel did not feel able to support my choice of deputy but I am willing to accept its recommendation,” she said.

“I will now spend some time contemplating my next move and will await the appointment of a new chief executive before making a decision.”

“I would like to thank Mark Kingscote for being willing to consider taking on this challenge on behalf of the people of Devon, Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly and I believe he would have served the people of our counties and islands well.”
