BELLSHILL Police Office has welcomed a new area commander.

Chief Inspector Rosie Wright was promoted to the post recently and is relishing the challenge the role brings.

CI Wright, from Glasgow, started her career with Strathclyde Police in the city almost 24 years ago.

Starting out as a constable in Clydebank, CI Wright progressed through the ranks to build up an impressive CV.

Over the years she garnered experience in female and child units and CID before being promoted to sergeant of community safety at the force headquarters in 2003.

She later worked at the London Road office and in Maryhill before becoming a road policing inspector.

In 2011, CI Wright took charge of the public service centre in Govan where she remained until being promoted to the Bellshill post.

CI Wright, who is married with one child, said: “It is great to get the opportunity to work outside the city divisions and to meet different communities and work with different people.

“Bellshill strikes me as like a metropolis of its own. There is so much to it in a relatively small area.

“The rest of the sub divisional area is a diverse community which is policed by a committed and professional team of police officers. Response, community police and CID officers work very well together in an effort to keep the community safer.

“My officers are doing a great job and it’s up to me to make sure that police resources are in the right place at the right time to maintain the highest standard of policing this community deserves.”
