Lancashire Police’s South Division has welcomed a new Superintendent.

Superintendent Sally Riley is the new operations manager for Preston, with responsibility for the neighbourhood, response and response investigations team.

Her policing career began when she joined Lancashire Constabulary in 1996 as a PC in East Lancashire.

Since then she worked her way up the ranks in various roles including intelligence and firearms, working as a response inspector in Preston and Chorley between 2012 and 2016 and then taking on the role of Force Incident Commander.

In 2020, Riley was posted to Wyre and Fylde as a Chief Inspector before becoming, as Superintendent, Operations Manager for Lancaster, Morecambe and Wyre.

She said: “It is a privilege to be working with and for the people of Preston. I have spent my almost 28 years of service working across our county and it’s really good to come back to Preston.    

“I am passionate about providing the very best service for the communities that we serve, tapping into community needs with a focus on supporting our staff to achieve the very best outcomes for the public and I will work closely with partner agencies to make sure that we can keep Preston a safe place for all who live, work in and visit our city.”
