The Association of Chief Police Officers has appointed Tim Mahony as its

new head of information.



Mahony, 51, succeeds John Deal, who moved to Merseyside Police in

September, as head of media services and communications, after three

years with the association.



Mahony, who heads up a two-strong London team within ACPO’s secretariat,

was previously policy PR co-ordinator with the recently-created

Environment Agency for England and Wales.



His career experience includes being head of information at the now-

defunct Inspectorate of Pollution, head of the Metropolitan Police’s 24-

hour press bureau and head of PR at Sussex Police. He spent a previous

period with ACPO, between 1990 and 1992, working as its first press

officer.



Mahony, who joined ACPO last week, said he intended to develop the

network of contacts with forces and chief police officers that his

predecessor had developed.
