Humberside chief constable quits ahead of watchdog report

The chief constable of Humberside Police is stepping down with immediate effect, days ahead of a watchdog’s report.

Justine Curran, 48, who joined the force nearly four years ago, is taking early retirement ahead of two reports by Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary.

The first into the force’s effectiveness is due in the first week of March; the second is into child protection issues.

Humberside Police Chief Constable Justine Curran steps down

Humberside Police Chief Constable Justine Curran has stepped down 18 months ahead of her retirement.

The announcement comes after the force was told by Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC) in November that it “requires improvement”.

Ms Curran, who was due to retire in September 2018, said the “time is right” to now leave.

    There is something seriously wrong with a system that allows people like Justine Curran to resign days before a critical report is published. She should either stay and take the criticism or her pension pot should be reduced by 20% if she chooses to run away.

      Here’s another high profile Senoir female police officer, who seems to have failed children involved in CSE. Unlike this one, Sara Thornton of Thames Valley, legged it into another job. Now she’s being considered for the top job at the met. The Sisters, aren’t looking after the younger ones.

        But as was expected Cressida Dick was appointed at Met chief.
        Thornton was never a possibility.

        There is nothing about CSE in the reports that I have seen so far on the Humberside chaotic mess.
