New District Commander for Swale

New district commander for Swale

Residents living in Faversham, Sittingbourne and on the Isle of Sheppey have a new district commander in charge of policing in Swale.

Chief Inspector Paul Anderson has taken over from Anthony Henley, who is due to retire in April following 30 years working for Kent Police.

Ch Insp Anderson has worked for Kent Police for 25 years and more recently has worked as the district commander for Dartford. He has a wealth of experience following roles in crime investigation, partnership working, major incident command and custody.

Ch Insp Paul Anderson, who started as Swale District Commander on Monday 22 February, said: ‘I am delighted to join the team in Swale and look forward to working with the district’s many communities.

‘I hope to continue building on the success of Chief Inspector Anthony Henley, who has made a real difference to policing in Swale.

‘I am keen to ensure that we are continuing to provide victims of crime with the support they deserve and that all possible efforts are made to identify those who spoil the area for others by breaking the law.

‘The Swale team will be working on the streets to deter anti-social behaviour, as well as giving residents the relevant crime prevention advice to help them protect themselves and their property.’

Ch Insp Anderson’s predecessor, Ch Insp Anthony Henley, is the longest serving district commander in the force, having worked as the district commander for Swale for eight years. He started his career with Kent Police in 1986.

Ch Insp Henley said: ‘I am privileged to have been able to serve the residents of Swale and meet so many incredible people who work hard to provide support to those most in need.

‘Swale really is a great place to live and I am certain that Chief Inspector Anderson will work hard to keep it that way and provide support to the various villages and communities.’
