Redbridge’s top police chief to bid farewell to borough
THE borough’s police force will say goodbye to its chief next month after he announced he is moving to a new job.
Borough Commander Chief Supt Peter Terry will take over as head of public order for the Metropolitan Police.
His duties will include managing major events and ceremonial events, and he will manage the use of helicopters, the dog section, the mounted branch and the Thames division.
Mr Terry, 47, said: “I’ve always had public order as one of my professional skill areas and this was an opportunity offered to me.
“It will be challenging but I’m looking forward to it.”
His replacement will be announced next week after the position was advertised internally.
Mr Terry, who worked in the borough as an inspector from 1997 to 1999, and returned as borough commander in June 2008, will leave his post on December 13.
