FIFE Police have appointed a new area chief inspector in Levenmouth.
Chief Inspector Graeme Kinmond, who has 27 years police service, is taking on the role and has served in all seven main stations in Fife.
He moved to Levenmouth in May 2008 as station inspector before becoming community inspector. From November, 2010, until September of this year he was temporary area chief inspector at Levenmouth.
CI Kinmond has worked for 12 years with the CID and four years as an office manager on HOLMES enquiries.
On his appointment, CI Kinmond said: “The initiatives I have been involved with at Levenmouth provide a very strong platform for working effectively with the community and partners.
“The community engagement model meetings, first piloted here in October 2008, have provided a clear opportunity for the community to tell us what issues are affecting them.
“Levenmouth’s focus on youth issues has led to a dramatic reduction in offending with an increase in detection rates.
“I am very much looking forward to working with the community to deliver the force’s vision of Taking Policing Closer to the Community.”
CI Kinmond is married and lives in Glenrothes with his wife and six-year-old daughter.
