Chief of Police Trevor Botting has today informed HE Governor Lisa Phillips that he will be leaving his post in early May 2017 – a few months earlier than the end of his contract in October 2017 – to start a new role overseas.
The Chief of Police has been in post since October 2013.
Chief of Police Trevor Botting said:
“It has been a privilege to lead the Police Directorate and serve the communities on St Helena, Ascension and Tristan da Cunha. There have been some significant challenges over the past three years but my teams continued to meet them and move forward. I am confident in the future of the Police Directorate as they continue to serve St Helena well.”
Governor Lisa Phillips added:
“I will be very sorry to see Trevor moving on to his next post and leaving St Helena. He leaves a strong legacy and will be a hard act to follow. It goes without saying that I wish him and his wife Sarah the best for the future and I wish to thank him for his excellent service to the people of St Helena.”
