Chief Constable retires
This week, I had the pleasure of hosting a reception to mark the retirement of Gwent Police Chief Constable Julian Williams, who formally steps down on Sunday 30 June.
Julian has been a very effective leader and has demonstrated his clear commitment to protecting the most vulnerable in our communities. His decision to create a special unit to help eradicate human trafficking and modern slavery is an excellent example of this.
I am sure there will be many opportunities for him to contribute to Welsh public life going forward and I wish him all the best for the future.
We are currently interviewing for his replacement and I will feed back on this process in due course.
