A regular column from Jan Whitbourn of Tulip Radio.

Chris Davison joined us in the Tulip Radio studios on the first anniversary of his appointment as district chief inspector for North and South Kesteven. He was previously Spalding’s community inspector.

Chris joined Lincolnshire Police in August 1997 as a constable in South Holland and still feels a strong connection to the district, but his latest beat takes him back to his home town of Grantham, where he was a volunteer police cadet.

He has continued his education to aid his professional development and this year graduates with an MSc in Police Leadership and Management from Warwick Business School.

With over 15 years’ experience, ranging from neighbourhood policing to crime investigation, Chief Insp Davison has also been involved in the management of the multi-million pound contract between Lincolnshire Police and strategic partners G4S. He spoke to us about funding for Lincolnshire Police, crime rates and home and property security. During his time with the force, Chris has been a keen contributor to mental health awareness and support, helping design and deliver the Mental Health Triage Car for Lincolnshire, and continues to assist with governance.
