CHESHIRE Police Authority has congratulated Peter Fahy on his appointment as the new Chief Constable of Greater Manchester.
Peter Nurse, chairman of the Police Authority, said: “During his five years as Chief Constable in Cheshire, Peter Fahy has been very successful in developing the Constabulary and reducing crime levels, all of which has made a real difference to the people of Cheshire, police officers and staff.
“His skills and experience will be a real asset to Greater Manchester Police and the communities it serves.”
The Authority is in discussions with Greater Manchester Police Authority about when Mr Fahy will start his new job.
Peter Nurse added: “The Police Authority will now start the process to find a new Chief Constable for Cheshire and hope to make an appointment later this year.
“If any interim arrangements are necessary the current deputy, Graeme Gerrard, will be appointed as Acting Chief Constable and the authority has every confidence in his leadership during this period.”
