UpBeat, May 2013
UpBeat is now an online-only publication. It is aimed at both
the public and the police officers and staff of Essex Police.
We have included hyperlinks to various webpages, where you can
find further information.
However, those pointing to pages on the internal Essex Police
intranet have been deactivated.
The May 2013 issue of UpBeat introduces new Essex Chief
Constable Stephen Kavanagh, who started work on May 6 with a visit
to the Force Control Room.
Find out what else he got up to during a busy first week.
In this issue of UpBeat, we also say farewell to outgoing Chief
Constable Jim Barker-McCardle and to Assistant Chief Constable Sue
Harrison, who have now both retired from policing.
There is news of the Chief Constable’s High Commendation awarded
to recognise the bravery of Pc Ian Dibell, who was shot on July 9,
2012, as well as commendations and awards presented to other
officers and staff.
