There’s a new police chief for the Aylesbury Vale.

Superintendent Gez Chiariello has been appointed commander, taking over from acting Supt Olly Wright. Olly is taking on the role of deputy commander for the local policing area (LPA).

Supt Chiariello, said: “I am delighted to be managing and looking after the Aylesbury Vale LPA.

“I am looking forward to working alongside some incredibly committed and dedicated members of staff, police officers, and key partner agencies to deliver a service that our communities, friends and family will be proud of.

“It will be highly rewarding to be involved in the existing hard work undertaken on the LPA and the strong commitment and determination that we all share on the local policing area to not only keep the levels of crime down and reduce the number of victims of crime, but to ensure the Vale continues to be a safe place to live and work for our communities.

“My priorities will be to ensure a quality of service across the 350 square miles of the Vale, protecting vulnerable people, keeping the communities of Aylesbury Vale safe and protecting them from harm.”

Supt Chiariello’s policing career started out with the West Midlands Police in 1994 and over the years he has worked in the most challenging areas in the country before transferring to Thames Valley Police in 2007.

Throughout his time with the force he has taken on a variety of roles. He was initially posted to Milton Keynes as the LPA commander. In March 2009, he became head of the Serving with Pride and Confidence programme, before becoming the head of the Criminal Justice in September 2010.

Outside of work, Supt Chiariello enjoys keeping fit. He is a qualified and practicing martial arts instructor and a FA football coach.
