Mason Moore | Hinckley Reporter | 17 August 2020
INSPECTOR Jamie Osborne has been welcomed into the role of Policing Commander for Hinckley and Blaby’s Neighbourhood Policing Area team.
Osborne climbed up the ranks and has taken the reins as Commander from Inspector Emma Maxwell just last week on Monday 10 August.
The announcement was made by the Hinckley Police on Twitter and shared on Facebook from the Leicestershire Police the day he moved into the new role.
As Commander, Inspector Osborne will be working closely with local partners and Detective Inspector Emma Matts, who investigates crimes reported in both Hinckley and Blaby.
Speaking about his new position as Commander in a YouTube video, Jamie said: “I want to say thank you to Emma at this time because I know she’s left Hinckley and Blaby in a fantastic position.
“I’m really looking forward to working with the partners at the Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council. I’m also looking forward to working together with my staff and the volunteers.”
Inspector Osborne has been a part of the police force for the past 27 years, where he mainly worked over in Loughborough on neighbourhood policing and response.
Whilst patrolling the streets on his duties in Loughborough during the 2012 summer Olympics, Inspector Osborne carried the Olympic torch and even met David Cameron, Lord Sebastian Coe, and Jessica Ennis-Hill.
Hinckley and Blaby’s former Commander, Emma Maxwell will be taking on the role as Chief Inspector in the city.
