New police commander appointed for Maidenhead and Windsor

A new top cop has been appointed for Windsor and Maidenhead.

Superintendent Kate Ford started as LPA Commander for the area on Monday, January 6.

She joined the force in 1986 and began her career at Maidenhead, spending five years as a patrol officer and neighbourhood officer.

After specialising in several roles across the Thames Valley she was promoted to Chief Inspector and was the Deputy LPA Commander in Slough before moving to South Bucks as the LPA Commander in 2011.

Supt Ford said: “I am pleased to be returning to an area I know very well having spent the first ten years of my service working in the Royal Borough.

“I am looking forward to getting to know my staff, partners and the local community, working with all three to make the Borough even safer and more attractive to live, work, learn in and visit."

Supt Ford has replaced Supt Simon Bowden who has taken over the reins as the new LPA Commander for Slough.
