Top Hertfordshire fireman Roy Wilsher to become part time police chief executive
Hertfordshire’s most senior firefighter is set to become the part time chief executive of the county's police in a dual role.
Roy Wilsher is being lined up to serve as Andrew White’s replacement at the police and crime commissioner's office, after Hertfordshire County Council’s employment committee approved the move.
Mr Wilsher, who currently works as the county’s £130,000 director of community protection and chief fire officer, will take on the new position an equivalent of two days a week.
It is not yet clear what he will be paid for the new role.
He is due to appear alongside police and crime commissioner David Lloyd at a Police and Crime Panel meeting on March 14 to seek approval for the appointment.
Mr Lloyd described the proposed appointment as an opportunity to "bring local partnership working together."
The introduction of a part-time replacement once Mr White leaves in April - initially on a one year secondment - is expected to save the taxpayer £100,000.
