A new inspector is overseeing the Hinckley and Blaby Neighbourhood Policing Area (NPA).
Steve Palmer has replaced Inspector Jamie Osborne in overseeing the patch which stretches from Glenfield to Hinckley – including Narborough, Stoney Stanton and Market Bosworth.
Insp Palmer – a former deputy NPA commander for East Leicester – took the reins this week. Insp Osborne, who became NPA commander in August 2020, is moving to a new role in local policing and partnerships.
Insp Palmer joined the Army at 16 years old, serving 14 years with the Royal Engineers before becoming a police officer in 2007, starting his career working in Blaby District.
He said: “I am delighted to be the Area Commander for Hinckley and Blaby, the area where I started my policing career 15 years ago.
“I look forward to using all my experience to build a strong policing team that works together with partners and our communities to make our area safer, putting the public first in all that we do.”
