New Chief Constable

The new Chief Constable of Wiltshire Police is to be Mike Veale, the Force’s present Deputy Chief Constable (DCC). 

He will succeed Pat Geenty, who announced in February his wish to retire.

Mr Veale has been the DCC at Wiltshire Police since March 2013, having joined the Force in January 2005 as a Detective Superintendent from Avon and Somerset Constabulary.

He said, “I am absolutely thrilled. During the past 10 years I have loved every minute of serving the public of Wiltshire and Swindon and I am incredibly proud that this Force is one of the top performing forces in the country.

“I will be taking over a Force with a strong reputation, high standards, a clear set of values and talented officers and staff. I want to build upon all of this good work.”
