New Leicestershire police and crime commissioner Sir Clive Loader promises 'openness'
New police and crime commissioner Sir Clive Loader held his first executive board meeting yesterday promising "a new era of openness and accountability."
The Conservative, who was elected to run policing in Leicestershire and Rutland last month, met with senior officers including chief constable Simon Cole at the force's headquarters.
He said: "I am lucky, not just to have got the job but in terms of the team I have inherited.
"This is a massive change in the way we do policing."

He described the meeting as an exercise in open democracy and reminded the chief constable that he was legally obliged to hold him to account.
He noted that 17 chief constables had recently left other forces and said: "I hope that is not just because of PCCs."
Mr Cole said he was excited by the opportunities the new position presented.
