BOURNEMOUTH AND POOLE DIVISIONAL COMMANDER HONOURED WITH MBE

Chief Superintendent Lynn Hart has received a MBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List for services to policing.

Chief Superintendent Lynn Hart, Bournemouth and Poole Divisional Commander, said: “I’m honoured and humbled to be receiving this award as I go into my 36th year of service with Dorset Police.

“I couldn’t have achieved the award without the support of my family, colleagues – police officers, police staff and volunteers – and partner agencies. I am accepting the award on behalf of all of them.”

Chief Constable Martin Baker said: -This is a richly deserved recognition of Lynn’s achievements over a long and distinguished career in policing.

-She has risen to one of the most senior levels in the police service through her total commitment to the communities she serves and to the people that she leads and I am delighted both for her and the Force.”

Chief Superintendent Lynn Hart, 52, joined Dorset Police as a cadet in 1975 at the age of 17, and became a police officer in Bournemouth soon after.

While rising through the ranks of Dorset Police, Chief Superintendent Hart also worked in Poole, Christchurch and at Force Headquarters in Winfrith.

In 2001, she was promoted to superintendent in command of the former Eastern Division, and then to chief superintendent in early 2008 when she took on the challenge of merging the old Eastern and Western divisions to create the Dorset County Division.

Later in 2008, Chief Superintendent Hart moved to the conurbation to take command of the Bournemouth and Poole Division; the post that she remains in today.

Chief Superintendent Lynn Hart has lived in Dorset for her entire life, and currently lives in the Bournemouth area of the county.
