He replaces Temporary Inspector Gaynor Turner.
The 46-year-old said: "To me, the all-important thing is to protect our communities from those who commit crime and those who behave anti-socially.
"This can best be done in partnership with other agencies and I will be working with a wide range of organisations to make this happen.
"I am also committed to robustly tackling offenders to stop their criminality."
He said he would try to recruit more police volunteers and to expand the number of Neighbourhood Watch schemes.
Insp McCabe said: "I am keen to listen to people's concerns and act upon them, so I would urge people to get in touch with me, or their local beat officer, if they have any issues at all and we will do what we can to tackle them."
