Chief constable announces retirement plan

12th March 2024

The Chief Constable of Gwent Police, Pam Kelly, has announced plans to retire later this year.

Police and Crime Commissioner for Gwent, Jeff Cuthbert, said: "I would like to thank Pam Kelly for her service to Gwent Police and also acknowledge her many years of service in Dyfed-Powys Police. In particular, the way in which she guided Gwent Police through the unprecedented times of the Covid-19 pandemic, something we could not have foreseen when I appointed her in 2019.

“Together, I believe we have achieved a lot. This will be a year of change for policing here in Gwent and this announcement will allow the new Commissioner to begin the process to appoint a new Chief Constable and ensure there is a smooth transition when Chief Constable Kelly retires."
