David Carroll has been appointed as the new Deputy PCC and will take up his role today (7/12).

A confirmation hearing for the appointment took place at the Police and Crime Panel meeting yesterday and the Panel has now written to the PCC recommending that Mr Carroll should be appointed the Deputy PCC.

David Carroll, from High Wycombe, is a councillor on Buckinghamshire County Council and Wycombe District Council as well as a former member of the Thames Valley Police Authority.

Anthony Stansfeld, Police and Crime Commissioner for Thames Valley, said: “I am delighted that the panel has recommended the appointment of David Carroll as my deputy and I look forward to working with him in the future. 

“Mr Carroll has experience and knowledge of Buckinghamshire, as well as an understanding of policing, and will help me ensure that I do the best job possible during my time in office. Whilst Mr Carroll will deputise for me as necessary to discharge my responsibilities across all areas of the Thames Valley, with my headquarters in Oxfordshire and my experience of Berkshire I felt it was important I appointed someone with specific knowledge of Buckinghamshire to ensure I effectively represent the Thames Valley.”

David Carroll said: “I am honoured to have been offered this position and be able to support Mr Stansfeld in ensuring that all of the communities of Thames Valley have their policing and crime needs met.”
