Who is the Chief Constable?

by Kitty

The Chief Constable has done the same job since 1926.  He gained his majority before World War One ended when he was in the Royal Artillery.  He has always regretted his failure to make M.C.

He holds himself remote from the men under his command thus being able to hide the fact that his knowledge of everyday policing is not great.

He is driven to and from his office each day wearing bowler hat and black overcoat, bearing umbrella and briefcase, rarely appearing in uniform unless it be a formal occasion when the dignitaries are present.  He is a leading member of the Roebuck Lodge of the Freemasons’ Society.
