Forres Police Station is open to the public five days-a-week.

A NEW chief is taking over from Inspector Keli McPhail after just over a year at Forres Police Station.

Kerry Rigg, who maintains her role as inspector for Lossiemouth and Fochabers, will now be in charge at Forres as well.

Insp McPhail is taking on the position of partnership inspector, based in Elgin, with responsibility for the whole of Moray.

She said: “It saddens me to be moving on as I have really enjoyed my time covering Forres and Speyside.

“There is a strong sense of community throughout, particularly during the wildfires last year where people came together at a crucial time.

“People here care about where they live and genuinely want to make it a better place.

“I have met many wonderful young people who are a credit to their age group and some who have overcome adversity to follow their goals.”

“The officers that I have supervised covering Forres and Speyside are dedicated, hardworking and strive to prevent crime, as well as find those responsible for offending when it does happen.

“With more demands placed on the service in recent years, it is important that we do not lose sight of the community that we serve and that we work alongside our partners to help each other solve the problems that arise.

“I will still have an involvement in the area, just in a different way.”
