Commander Ben-Julian Harrington, known as BJ, will join the force on secondment, replacing Matthew Horne who is joining the National Crime Agency as deputy directory – also initially on secondment. Commander Harrington was a silver commander for London’s Olympic Games in 2012.

He currently holds lead responsibility for public order policing and emergency preparedness across London.

He has spent his entire 26-year career in policing with the Met.

Chief Constable Stephen Kavanagh said: “During his interview, BJ demonstrated his commitment to the values of Essex Police and, as importantly, to keeping our county’s communities safe. He will bring to Essex a wealth of experience and operational knowledge and I look forward to working with him.”
