SHETLAND’s new police area commander says it is a “genuine privilege” to serve the community again after starting his role earlier this week.
It is chief inspector Paul Daley’s third stint in the police force in Shetland. It comes after Lindsay Tulloch was seconded to another role.
He has 17 years police service with Northern Constabulary and Police Scotland and he started his role as Shetland’s new area commander on Monday (24 May).
Daley moved to Shetland as sergeant in 2009 before returning in 2014 as inspector. He has also served in Glencoe, Fort William and Glasgow.
Chief Inspector Daley said: “I am very fond of Shetland and although I moved away, I never really left it behind. It is a genuine privilege to serve the people of Shetland once again, where the sense of community is unparalleled.
“I look forward to working with partner agencies again; in my view no one does partnership working better than Shetland and those great relationships ultimately benefit all Shetlanders.
“Shetland has ambition and it’s an ambition which I share. My team and I will play our part in ensuring the isles remain a safe place to live, work, play and bring up a family.”
After only two days in the role Daley took part in his first meeting of Shetland’s community safety and resilience board on Wednesday.
