Andrew White
Assistant Chief Officer, Resources at Lincolnshire Police


Andrew White was appointed as the Assistant Chief Officer (ACO) in June 2017.

He has spent the last decade in police governance working as Chief Executive for Police Authorities and Police and Crime Commissioners in Hertfordshire and Devon & Cornwall. Whilst at the Devon & Cornwall Office of the Police & Crime Commissioner, Andrew led the team that identified significant shortcomings in the Government’s Funding Reform Proposals in 2015. This work directly led to the Government’s decision to withdraw their proposals. Andrew continues to take a keen interest in police funding with a view to Lincolnshire receiving fair funding.

Prior to moving into the world of policing, Andrew worked across the Civil Service finishing with a decade at Ofsted as Head of Human Resources and then Director of Corporate Services. In that time, Andrew was central to Ofsted taking responsibility for the inspection and regulation of childcare in 2001.

When not working, he is a keen tennis player and occasional golfer as well as an avid devourer of music from the late fifties to the present day – his tastes are more often described obscure rather than mainstream. The love of music is demonstrated by regular attendance at festivals and other gigs.
