Preston Police welcomes new Chief Inspector. 
CI Scott Boast will be responsible for Response Policing across the city.
In 2004, CI Boast joined Lancashire Constabulary as a Police Constable based on Response in Blackburn. Since then, he has worked all around East Lancashire on Response and Local Policing teams, working his way through the ranks.
Last year, CI Boast moved to HQ as a Chief Inspector with a responsibility for anti-social behaviour, prevention and problem solving for the force.
Having led the implementation of the Task Force Teams, CI Boast is particularly proud that every district across Lancashire now has a dedicated Task Force Team, targeting and disrupting those suspected of being involved in organised crime.
Additionally, he has worked on the Tom review, leading on Local Policing, Hate Crime, Community Cohesion and Early Intervention.
Speaking about his new role, CI Boast said: ‘I have really enjoyed getting to work on what affects our communities in Preston, working with partner agencies to continue to respond effectively to those who are in need.
I am committed to continuing to improve our connection to the community. Our Response teams are the first contact with those who are in need, and it is my priority to ensure that we remain victim focused.
“I am really looking forward to working alongside and supporting the Response teams that provide around the clock protection to our most vulnerable people in society and doing everything we can to bring offenders to justice”.
