ELY police have a familiar face in the top job after Alan Savill was appointed inspector.
Insp Savill, who joined the station three years ago as beat sergeant for the North Neighbourhood, takes over the role from Insp Adam Gallop, who has transferred to CID at Cambridge's Parkside Police Station.
He said: "I want to continue the good work that Ely police have achieved through community engagement and partnership working over the last few years since the introduction of neighbourhood policing.
"The district remains a low crime area. Reducing crime and the perception of crime is our common goal."
Last year, Insp Savill was pipped at the post in a national competition for the title 'community officer of the year' after being nominated for his work in the north neighbourhood.
During his long career he has worked across the county as a dog handler working with sniffer dogs highly trained to seek out drugs and explosives.
