Top policewoman to take new post
One of Northern Ireland's most senior policewomen is to take up a top post in the West Midlands.
Chief Superintendent Michele Larmour is leaving the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) to join the second largest force in England.
Ms Larmour, who has been appointed Assistant Chief Constable at West Midlands Police, said: "I'm looking forward to the challenges of my new role with West Midlands Police Force and being part of their innovative five year transformational change programme.
"I am extremely proud of my policing career in Northern Ireland dating back to 1986. I have witnessed significant change along that journey and now hope to utilise these skills within my new role in West Midlands."
Ms Larmour joined the Royal Ulster Constabulary 28 years ago and has most recently been head of the policing college in Northern Ireland.
She was also among the top performers on the Strategic Command Course from which she graduated last month.
PSNI Chief Constable George Hamilton said : "Chief Superintendent Larmour has made a lasting and significant contribution to policing in Northern Ireland throughout her 28 year career.
"She will bring a wealth of skill and experience to her new post."
