Chief Superintendent Paul Davies has been appointed the police commander for Devon.
He took up the post this week and is responsible for all areas of Devon, except Plymouth.
He transferred to Devon and Cornwall Constabulary in 1998 at the age of 27 and, in recent years, has been the local commander for two policing areas across the force - North Devon and Torridge and, more recently, East and Mid Devon.
His most recent post has been to lead the force preparation for the transition to a Police and Crime Commissioner in November.
