A new substantive deputy police commander has been appointed for Windsor and Maidenhead.
Chief Inspector Sarah Grahame joins from serving in the same role for the Chiltern and South Bucks command team. Acting deputy, Inspector Emily Roberts, reverts to her previous role as a neighbourhood inspector.
Ch Insp Grahame has been a serving officer with Thames Valley Police since 2009 and has worked in several departments across the Thames Valley force, as well as Surrey Police, where she worked previously.
Past roles include working in intelligence, control room sergeant, neighbourhood sergeant, acting neighbourhood inspector and patrol inspector.
Ch Insp Grahame, who began today (Tuesday), said: “I’m really looking forward to getting started. Each area of the Thames Valley requires its own unique approach to policing and I look forward to engaging with our communities throughout Windsor, Maidenhead and Ascot. We have clear priorities in this area, including to protect the most vulnerable members of our community.”
Ch Insp Grahame will work under the recently appointed commander, Superintendent Bhupinder Rai, who took up post in October. Supt Rai said: “I’m delighted that Sarah is joining the team in Windsor and Maidenhead. Her years of experience will be of great benefit to the area and I know that the officers, staff and partners will enjoy working with her day-to-day too.
