New assistant chief constable at West Midlands Police

Solihull Editorial 11th Nov, 2023   0

WEST Midlands Police has welcomed Damian Barratt as a new assistant chief constable.

The force says he will oversee the security portfolio which includes regional serious and organised crime along with regional and national counter terrorism.

Damian started his policing career with West Mercia Police in 1995 working in a variety of roles in local policing in north Worcestershire, before specialising in leading public protection, serious and major crime investigations.

In 2016, after becoming the head of Specialist Operations for the Strategic Alliance between West Mercia and Warwickshire, he oversaw the transition of resources to significantly develop the Regional Organised Crime Unit (ROCU) for the West Midlands.

He then took up the role of head of operations in the ROCU for two years.

In 2018 he returned to West Mercia, initially as head of major investigations and then, upon promotion to detective chief superintendent, as head of Crime and Vulnerability.
