Chief Superintendent Graham Bartlett, the present Divisional Commander in Brighton and Hove will be stepping down in March. While Chief Police Officers plan the assessment procedure to decide his successor, Superintendent Steve Whitton will act up as Chief Superintendent for the city.
Superintendent Whitton is the city’s current Crime and Operations Superintendent. Over the past four years he has led many high profile operations, working alongside partners to ensure the safety of the events which make Brighton & Hove such a fantastic ‘place to be’.
Until the new Divisional Commander is appointed DCI Jez Graves will continue to act up as the Crime & Operations Superintendent and DI Clare Shiel will remain the Detective Chief Inspector.
