DPA appoints new President

Following the 2023 Annual General Meeting at Merseyside Police HQ, we are delighted to introduce Inspector Tracy Betts from Essex Police as the person chosen by the Executive Committee to fulfil the role of DPA President. Tracy had previously served as Interim President following the retirement of outgoing President Simon Nelson.

Tracy comments: “I’m thrilled and grateful to have been selected to join the Disabled Police Association as President, taking over from Superintendent Simon Nelson. His are big shoes to fill, but I’m sure with the help and support of the incredibly talented and capable Executive Committee and support networks throughout the country, we can take the DPA to the next level and continue to make positive and meaningful change to the working lives of our members, and for the public they serve.”

Tracy brings a personal commitment and much lived and professional experience, and we wish her well in her new role. ∎
