New Chief Executive in post
The new Chief Executive for the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner for Essex is now in post.
Pippa Brent-Isherwood will run the office of the Police, Fire & Crime Commissioner. Her experience in developing public policy, improving services for vulnerable people, engaging with the public, creating multi-disciplinary teams and her direction of a wide range of front line and back office services will prove invaluable in helping to implement the priorities the people of Essex want to see delivered by both their police force and fire and rescue service.
Pippa joins Roger Hirst’s team from the London Borough of Havering, which, under her guidance, became one of the first authorities in the country to integrate adult safeguarding into a hub which brought all safeguarding services under a single umbrella.
Pippa has 13 years’ experience as a senior leader in local authorities across Hertfordshire, Essex and London and a proven track record of listening to and learning from local communities so they have the tools and opportunities to make positive changes in their neighbourhoods.
Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner, Roger Hirst said:
“We welcome Pippa to her new role and look forward to seeing how she can bring her expertise to bear to help us make Essex a safer place to live and work. One of her first tasks will be to implement the priorities identified when we consult the public on the new Fire & Rescue Plan later this month.”
Chief Executive for the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner for Essex, Pippa Brent-Isherwood said:
“I am delighted to join Roger’s team, especially at such a key time when we’ll soon be working with a new Chief Constable at Essex Police and as we embark on creating the new Fire & Rescue Plan in conjunction with the Chief Fire Officer, Jo Turton, following our engagement with the public.
“Roger’s office already supports many local projects to improve the lives of individual communities and help keep people safe. As I have an extensive background in this area, I look forward to helping to increase our reach to more people who would really benefit and to introducing more partnership working to increase efficiency and effectiveness.”
