New role for north Norfolk and Broadland’s top cop

North Norfolk's top cop is leaving the district after being asked to take on a new role within the county.

District Commander Neil Baily, who also covers Broadland, is leaving his post to temporarily take up a Detective Superintendent position as head of the constabulary's CID.

Chief Inspector Baily starts his new role in two weeks time , which he will hold for a year, and is then expected to return to the North Norfolk and Broadland patch.

His place at North Walsham police station will be filled by Chief Inspector Carl Edwards during this time.

He said: 'Chief Insp Edwards is a very experienced officer and I am sure that he will continue to build on the excellent relationships that exist locally between the police and our partner organisations and individuals.

'I will be gradually handing over to Chief Insp Edwards over the next few weeks and will be providing my full support during the transitional period.'

Chief Insp Baily joined Norfolk Constabulary in 2000 and took on the district commander role in 2010. During his 23 year career in the police he has primarily worked within specialist detective roles.
