Justin Burtenshaw announced as new Sussex Police commander for Chichester

The Argus: NEW LEAD: Justin Burtenshaw NEW LEAD: Justin Burtenshaw

A new Sussex Police chief inspector takes up the helm this week Chief Inspector Justin Burtenshaw, the new district commander, moves to Chichester from Brighton where he has been for his 16 year career at Sussex Police.

He said: "Most recently I have led the Safe in the City Team at Brighton which deals with all aspects of community safety and partnership work. This work includes antisocial behaviour and hate crime, street community work, youth and intervention work and engagement with different communities and travellers as well. I also ran the investigation team for Brighton and Hove Albion Football matches.

"I am keen for my teams to think of innovative ideas to benefit the wider community.

“An example of this was the Alcohol Diversion Scheme that I introduced in Brighton in 2012 to tackle binge drinking and alcohol related crime and anti social behaviour.

“This scheme was recently launched across West Sussex and will undoubtedly have similar successes that we have seen in Brighton.

"Outside of work my big passion is sport. I am a huge Tottenham Hotspurs fan, so I am often grumpy on a Saturday afternoon.

“When I am not working, watching Spurs or spending time with my family, you will find me relaxing by a lake, fishing. I live in West Sussex with my wife, 11-year-old daughter and Bouncer the Border Collie.

“Becoming District Commander for Chichester will be both challenging and exciting for me. I've inherited an amazing team of officers and staff with a strong sense of identity and team spirit. These are key reasons why I am so excited about my new role. I know that partnership working is also a strength within the Chichester District and I relish the opportunity to develop this further."

Outgoing district commander Tanya Jones takes on her new role of Detective Chief Inspector of Crime Manager for West Sussex Division.

She said: "I thoroughly enjoyed working in Chichester as the district commander. I had the pleasure of working in a really great city with a great community spirit, a fantastic team of officers and alongside some committed partner agencies who I have been honoured to work alongside."

How to be a good commander / person.

1. Do not brown nose senior orange police officers

2. Do not constantly bullsh*t (i.e I know him, I know her, I've been there, I've got one of those blah blah)

3. Actually listen to other people and realise the world does not revolve around your own life

4. Be nicer to the people below you, because one day they will be above you.

Good luck.
