RESPONSIBILITY for supporting the most vulnerable across the county has been handed to a new chief.

West Mercia Police and Warwickshire Police have appointed Superintendent Steve Cullen as their new head of protecting vulnerable people.

He has served as a detective at all ranks and previously led the north and south Worcestershire policing areas, as well as taking on the role of force crime manager.

Karen Manners, assistant chief constable and lead for protective services, said: “I am delighted to welcome Steve to this critically important role. He has a depth of experience and already has an excellent relationship with the many partners we need to work alongside to tackle these extremely sensitive and complicated areas of crime.”

Supt Cullen added: “I am privileged and proud to be asked to lead such a high profile area as protecting vulnerable people. The work that our people do day in day out with partners is at the heart of why we all joined the service, to protect those most in need from harm and bring serious offenders to justice.”
