Caderdale Police’s response team has a new inspector.

Inspector Darren Wainwright, who was previously a sergeant with the team, has been promoted.

In Calderdale, he has also worked in the integrated offender management team and in the Halifax North and East neighbourhood policing team before he joined the response team.

He joined the police 17 years ago, starting at Odsal, and worked on patrol, with the firearms team and as a custody sergeant before coming to Calderdale in April 2007.

Inspector Wainwright said he is looking forward to helping continue to reduce crime in the district and ensure that Calderdale is a safe place to live, work and socialise.
