CHIEF Superintendent Paul Davison – Divisional Commander for the East Riding of Yorkshire – will be retiring after 30 years service at the end of the month.

Ch Supt Davison was the head of Bridlington Police, between June 1999 and February 2000, after starting his police career at Queens Gardens Police Station.

He has enjoyed a varied career which has seen him work mostly in CID, which culminated in a posting to Hull as Detective Superintendent in 2001.

“I have had a brilliant time working alongside some real characters and had the privilege of leading some complex and interesting murder investigations, which I will remember forever,” said Ch Supt Davison, who retires on March 30.

“My last four years of service has been as Divisional Commander for the East Riding and hope that I have made a real difference to local people and their quality of life. It is now one of the safest places to live in the country and I am proud of the service we provide to victims of crime and anti-social behaviour.

“I would like to thank all the colleagues I have worked with for their hard work, sense of humour, loyalty and support during some challenging times. I would also like to thank residents of the East Riding who have been very supportive towards me and my officers.”
