He said: “It is an absolute privilege to take on this role and I am relishing the opportunity to work with my officers, staff, borough agencies and the community.
“We are fortunate that Barking and Dagenham is one of the safest London boroughs, but that doesn’t mean there is not room for further reductions in crime.”
