TWO senior police officers, who have spent the majority of their service policing the communities of East Lancashire, have returned to their roots.
Superintendent Damian Darcy and Chief Inspector Russ Procter have joined Pennine Division, which covers the Burnley, Pendle and Rossendale areas.
Superintendent Darcy, 42, was born in Bacup and joined Lancashire Constabulary in 1992.
He worked in Rawtenstall and Haslingden, before moving to the Operations Support Unit.
He worked as a sergeant in Burnley and CID, before being promoted to inspector at Burnley, and later a chief inspector at Blackburn.
Chief Inspector Procter has had an 18-year career with Lancashire Constabulary.
He joined the force in 1994, working as a patrol officer in Colne, before working as a Community Beat Manager in Colne.
He has since worked in various roles, including the Operations Support Unit, the Targeting Team, and the Intelligence Unit.
Divisional Commander Chief Superintendent Chris Bithell said: “I’m really pleased to have both Superintendent Darcy and Chief Inspector Procter back in the division, and I am confident they will continue to build upon the fantastic work which is already taking place across Burnley, Pendle and Rossendale.”
