New leader for Norfolk and Suffolk Christian Police 

Norfolk and Suffolk Christian Police Association has had a change of leadership with former Deputy Branch Leader of Norfolk, Claire Hamilton-Deane, taking over as Branch Leader from Marie Reavey.


Marie served in the role for five years, during which the Norfolk and Suffolk branches merged to become one. Alan Russell from Norfolk joins the team as Deputy in Claire’s place alongside Barry Teare and Shane Hughes from Suffolk. Claire is currently based in the Multi Agency Safeguarding Hub working in the area of modern slavery and human trafficking.
Claire said: “I am excited to see what God has in store for CPA in this new season.  As a branch, we very much want to support Marie in her new role working within Faith and Police together.
“CPA’s mission is to be a national voice for Christians in policing, to encourage and support Christians in the Police service and communicate in words and action, the truth, message and hope of the gospel of Jesus Christ to colleagues and the community we serve.

"ClaireHamiltonDean200We look to build bridges between the Christian community and the Police and want to see Police and churches working together in every community to reduce crime and improve quality of life. We really do value your support and prayers.”
