Responding to the news that Chief Constable Alex Marshall is to retire from policing and take up a post tackling corruption in sport, APCC Chair Dame Vera Baird QC said:
“Police and Crime Commissioners will be sorry to hear that Chief Constable Alex Marshall has taken the decision to leave his post at the College of Policing. Since becoming the first ever Chief Executive at the College, Alex has done an exceptional job in embedding the professional body into the policing landscape.
“Alex has dedicated his professional life to policing, using his significant and obvious talents in the public interest. There is no doubt that the College’s loss is the International Cricket Council’s gain.
“The APCC will continue to work closely with Alex and the College during this hugely important time for policing over the coming months; work that will continue once the new Chief Executive is in place in the autumn.”
