I have worked with some inspirational people across the organisation, and I’m grateful for all the support I have received. I look forward to building and leading a professional business support function for Strategy and Policy.”

Hiten has worked hard to carve a career for himself within the CPS, and his perseverance and ambitions are inspiring. His appointment is a win for us all.”

“Hiten brings a breadth of expertise to the role, drawn from his experience at both HQ and in Area. His commitment to fairness and the CPS values shone through in his interview and fits perfectly with the Directorate’s ambition to lead from the front on the CPS’s Inclusion and Community Engagement Strategy.
