First day on duty for new Avon and Somerset Police chief constable Nick Gargan
Avon and Somerset police’s new chief constable has been on duty for his first day at the helm.
Nick Gargan has replaced Colin Port, who retired after leading the constabulary for eight years.
On his first day yesterday, Mr Gargan attended daily officer briefings across the force area and had his first experience of patrolling the streets of Bristol and towns in Somerset.
His early priorities include getting to know his front-line officers and staff, as well as familiarising himself with the crimes they have to tackle in their areas.

Mr Gargan said: “This is one of the most diverse and interesting forces in the country and it’s a great honour to take up the role of Chief Constable of Avon and Somerset.”
Mr Gargan was appointed by Police and Crime Commissioner Sue Mountstevens in January, ahead of three other short-listed candidates after a rigorous interview process.
He added: “It’s coincidental that I should be joining the force on the Police and Crime Commissioner’s 100th day in office, but there is an interesting symbolism in that.
“In this new world of policing and austerity, partnership is even more crucial.”
