Debbie Tedds is the current Chief Constable of Warwickshire Police. She was appointed by the Warwickshire Police and Crime Commissioner and took up the post on July 1, 2021 on fixed-term five year contract.
The Chief Constable’s starting salary is £146,469 per annum. The salary will increase in line with national police pay settlements.
All Chief Constable’s salaries are set nationally and are dependent on the size of the force. Warwickshire is among the five smallest forces in England and Wales and the salary is weighted accordingly.
Police and Crime Commissioners have discretion to vary the salary of the Chief Constable by up to 10%. In Warwickshire the decision was taken not to apply any increase and to therefore leave the salary at the nationally set figure.
