Chief Constable Chris Eyre

About our Chief Constable

I am extremely proud to be the Chief Constable of Nottinghamshire Police, a force which prides itself on delivering the highest possible standard of service to you.

As Chief Constable, leading a hardworking, dedicated police family of officers, staff and volunteers, my focus is on always driving our performance and development to make Nottinghamshire the best police force in England and Wales.

Before joining Nottinghamshire Police, I was Temporary Chief Constable at Leicestershire Police where I had also been Deputy Chief Constable and Assistant Chief Constable.

In June 2010, I came here as Deputy Chief Constable and became Chief Constable in August 2012.

Having previously been the national lead for forensics I am extremely passionate about this area of policing work. I have previously held responsibility for developing forensics services across the East Midlands.

Within this portfolio, I led on developing national best practice in a range of different sections of the criminal justice system, including how the bail process works, custody provisions and services, the integrated offender management system, how we can better resolve cases out of court and the introduction of virtual courts.

My adopted Chief Constable’s charity for 2016 is CLIC Sargent, the UK’s leading cancer charity for children and young people and their families.

Billy’s House in Nottingham provides a ‘home from home’ for families of children and young people receiving treatment at the Queens Medical Centre (QMC). This facility for the families of those being treated for cancer undoubtedly provides the opportunity for them to remain close by during what can only be an extraordinarily difficult time for them.

By raising money for CLIC Sargent I hope that we can support them in their efforts to ease the strains involved for those suffering with, and supporting, loved ones who have cancer and to help them get the most out of life.

In the little spare time I have, I'm a keen rugby fan and honoured to be the Nottinghamshire Police Rugby Club President. I also enjoy spending quality time with my wife and three children.
