Lincolnshire Police’s Superintendent Diane Coulson has been appointed as Lincolnshire County Council’s new Assistant Director of Public Protection and will take up the post in the New Year.

The role involves making sure that a host of agencies are working together effectively to keep communities safe. This includes Lincolnshire Police, Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue, Lincolnshire Trading Standards and health and charity organisations.

Taking up the post on January 6, Superintendent Coulson has 23 years of experience within policing and has worked in a number of roles including response and neighbourhood policing, CID, the force’s Protecting Vulnerable People Unit and Major Crime Investigation.
