Dunedin police's district operations manager Inspector
Alastair Dickie is to take up the role of Clutha-Taieri area
Insp Dickie will begin in the role on March 31, at the rank
of senior sergeant with responsibility for overseeing
policing in the Clutha-Taieri sub-area.
He will also provide administrative and operational support
to Balclutha, Mosgiel and surrounds.
Southern police district superintendent Andrew Coster said
Insp Dickie appreciated the support police received from the
community and was looking forward to rekindling connections
with former local partner agency contacts and local staff. He
wished Insp Dickie well.
Insp Dickie, who has been in the police for 36 years, the
last seven as an inspector, said he had fond memories of his
early policing years in rural areas.
He viewed his vacated position as an opportunity for a
younger police staff member to develop further in their
career, he said.
He and his family would live on the Taieri and he would
balance his time across his area of responsibility.
