Ex-PSNI deputy appointed DCC of Civil Nuclear Constabulary

The Deputy PSNI chief who quit after being overlooked for promotion has landed a new job.

Stephen Martin has become the new Deputy Chief Constable at the Civil Nuclear Constabulary. 

He brings with him 34 years of experience with the PSNI including holding three separate Assistant Chief Constable portfolios.

He made the headlines  by making clear he was considering legal action against the force because he failed to make the shortlist to become the PSNI's Deputy Chief Constable.

The PSNI’s decision was made despite the fact he was already working in the role as a Temporary with responsibility for corporate governance, professional standards, organisational change and performance.

One member of the interview panel resigned over their concerns.

Mr Martin had also previously interviewed for the Chief Constable role that went to Simon Byrne.

He retired from the force and took on roles with Ireland's Policing Authority and Belfast Harbour until accepting his new job.

It will give the force certainty as it now has a completely new top team.

Chief Constable Simon Chesterman joined in 2019 and Assistant Chief Constable Louise Harrison was appointed in February 2020 to oversee operations.

CC Simon Chesterman said: “Stephen’s wealth of experience in armed policing, and his ability to engage with a broad range of stakeholders to achieve organisational objectives will enable him to hit the ground running in his new role. He will be a tremendous asset to the CNC as we pursue our ambitions for the future of the organisation.”

Outside of policing, DCC Martin is also the non-executive Chair of the Irish Football Association and sits on the Prince’s Trust Northern Ireland advisory committee.

DCC Martin said: “I am delighted to be appointed as the Deputy Chief Constable of the Civil Nuclear Constabulary. I very much look forward to working with all my new colleagues around Great Britain in their critical mission of safeguarding the nation’s nuclear interests.

He added: “I can see already that this is a progressive police service with an ambitious workforce and an exciting future.”
