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.
