In 2014, the now Chief became the force's Temporary Deputy Chief Constable, leading on Professional Standards, Ethics and Equality. He was appointed as Deputy Chief Constable three years later, before taking up his current post of Chief Constable in July 2019.

Mayor of West Yorkshire, Tracy Brabin, said: “In spite of unrelenting government spending cuts, West Yorkshire Police’s Chief Constable John Robins has continued to navigate the Force through the many challenges it faced with sheer professionalism.
