Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

Today, Chief Inspector Kelly Gardner has started in her new role as Deputy Commander for the Milton Keynes Local Policing Area (LPA)

Chief Inspector Kelly Gardner is returning to Milton Keynes having left to work on a number of strategic policing projects at the end of 2016 from TVP Headquarters in Kidlington.

Chief Inspector Gardner joined Thames Valley Police in 2004 as a response officer in Milton Keynes and has worked in both operational and detective roles.

Most recently, Chief Inspector Gardner has been involved with strategic projects including evolving the structure of the Local Policing Model and shaping improvements to investigative practices. Chief Inspector Gardner is also one of the force’s hostage and crisis negotiators and coordinators.

On her new appointment, Chief Inspector Gardner said: “I am really looking forward to returning to Milton Keynes in my new role as Deputy Commander.  Policing faces unprecedented challenges and my response to those challenges will begin with care and regard for our officers and staff, developing and equipping them with the right tools which will ensure that they can deliver the security and resilience the communities of Milton Keynes expect. 

“I will endeavour to deliver an excellent service to the communities we serve, focusing on preventing crime and harm which is impacting on our neighbourhoods, particularly to those who are most vulnerable. When crimes have occurred, timely and thorough investigations will be conducted to help ensure offenders will be brought to justice.”
