Commander of Central North Police District, Superintendent Andrew Hurst will be leaving town shortly after being offered a new position at Police Headquarters in Sydney.

Superintendent Hurst will leave at the beginning of July after accepting a position to lead the new Crime Prevention Command at Police Headquarters in Parramatta.

“This unit includes the NSW Police Domestic and Family Violence team, the Aboriginal Coordination Team and the Mental Health Intervention Team,” he said.

“It also includes the Crime Prevention Support Unit which provides support to frontline police units.

“This new position relates to the studies I completed last year at the University of Cambridge and the Churchill Fellowship I was awarded last year to identify behavioural change programs for domestic violence offenders.”

The NSW Police Force has already advertised for a replacement for Supt Hurst in Bourke, and expect to have a replacement decided by late June when a number of senior NSW Police will be visiting Bourke.
