Policing Board Chair Doug Garrett said:
“Appointing the PSNI leadership team is an important role for the Board and I am delighted to confirm that four new appointments have been made. Mark McNaughten is appointed to the role of Assistant Chief Officer Corporate Services and Aldrina Magwood is appointed to the role of Assistant Chief Officer Strategic Planning and Transformation. Bobby Singleton and Chris Todd are appointed as new Assistant Chief Constables.
Supporting the Chief Constable, Deputy Chief Constable and Chief Operating Officer role in the delivery of policing, each will play a key role as a member of the PSNI Service Executive Team. As a Board, we look forward to working with them in the time ahead.
The ACO level appointments fill new positions created as the result of a restructure to the Leadership Team and the ACC appointments fill vacancies at that level.”
