Mabs Hussain appointed Deputy Chief Constable of North Yorkshire

A senior police officer is returning home to Yorkshire after three years with Greater Manchester Police.

Mabs Hussain MBE has been appointed as Deputy Chief Constable for North Yorkshire Police, and will join the force in January 2022.

He is currently Assistant Chief Constable of Greater Manchester where he has worked since October 2018. Prior to that he spent 22 years with West Yorkshire Police, serving at every rank as detective - including Detective Chief Inspector. He was promoted to Superintendent in 2012, and then became a Chief Superintendent working in both Wakefield and Leeds. He was awarded the MBE in 2018 for service to charity and policing.

Mabs will take up his new role with North Yorkshire Police in the New Year, following the retirement of current Deputy Chief Constable Phil Cain, who has served for over 20 years with the force.

North Yorkshire Police Chief Constable Lisa Winward said: “I’m thrilled to confirm Mabs as our new Deputy Chief Constable and I offer him a very warm welcome to North Yorkshire.

“His extensive policing background and experience will be a credit to the force and I am very much looking forward to working with him as part of our Chief Officer Team.”

Mr Hussain added: “I’m delighted to be joining North Yorkshire Police as Deputy Chief Constable and am very much looking forward to working alongside the Chief Officer Team, the organisation and partnership as a whole.

“Prior to joining Greater Manchester Police, I spent 22 years with West Yorkshire Police as Commander for both Wakefield and Leeds. Yorkshire is very close to my heart as I was born here and I also live here.

“I will be working hard to ensure that North Yorkshire remains one of the safest places to live and visit in the UK.”

Jenni Newberry, Acting North Yorkshire Police, Fire & Crime Commissioner, said: “On behalf of the team at the Office of the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner, I would like to congratulate Mabs Hussain on being selected by the Chief Constable to be her new Deputy here in North Yorkshire and York.

“Our Executive Management Team has been involved in this selection process which was made difficult in the best of ways by the quality of the candidates being considered.

“We are grateful to those who applied and are confident Mabs’s appointment is the right one to support Lisa Winward and the whole of North Yorkshire Police continue their efforts to be the best they can be at keeping us safe and feeling safe.”
