New ACC for Avon and Somerset

ACC Joanne Hall has moved from Devon and Cornwall Police.

Avon and Somerset has welcomed a new ACC to the force this week.

ACC Joanne Hall took up her new post yesterday after transferring from Devon and Cornwall.

She will take on the Investigations and Ops Support portfolios as well as being the force lead for VAWG.

ACC Hall had first served South Wales Police in a police staff role, before becoming a PC in 1999.

Two years later she transferred to Devon and Cornwall where she has worked mainly in investigations in detective roles. When the G7 summit was hosted in Cornwall, she was the public face of the policing operation.

ACC Hall said: “My roots are firmly in the West Country and I’m delighted to be continuing my policing career in the South West.

“I’m incredibly excited to be joining Avon and Somerset – I feel aligned to the organisation’s values of being caring, courageous, inclusive and learning. I want to look after people and ethics, integrity and standards are really important to me.

“My first impressions are that this is an incredibly welcoming and forward-thinking police service. I can’t wait to get started.”

Chief Constable Sarah Crew said: “I’m delighted to have Jo join our team here at Avon and Somerset. She brings with her a passion for policing, values that align with our own and some very relevant experience.

“She will also bring a fresh perspective and I have no doubt she will help us speed all the more quickly towards our ambition for outstanding policing for everyone.”
