Nancie Shackleton (BEM), Assistant Chief Officer

Following the retirement of Phil Goatley, Nancie has taken up the role of interim Assistant Chief Officer (Support). This portfolio covers people, finance, fleet, estates, ICT, learning and development and business support. 

Nancie has worked in both Humberside and Lincolnshire Police in a variety of posts: Intelligence Analyst, Research Manager, Performance Manager, Head of Strategic Development, Assistant Director for Safer Communities (Lincolnshire County Council), Head of the Commercial Partnership Team and ACO Resources. 

She is a coach and mentor, and is passionate about people achieving their potential. She completed the Strategic Command Course in 2006 and returned as an Executive Coach for the course in 2007. She has been seconded to both the Police Standards Unit (Forensics) and Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary during the debate about merging police forces.

As Assistant Chief Officer (Resources) for Lincolnshire, she led a major IT programme involving 5 of the East Midlands Forces. This was completed in summer 2016 and the programme is now expanding to also include the City Of London Police. 

Nancie was awarded the British Empire Medal (BEM) in the 2018 New Year's Honours List. National Police Chiefs' Council Chair Sara Thornton said: “I warmly congratulate all those members of the police service who have been named in the New Year’s Honours List. “After what has been an extremely challenging year for our officers and staff, I am delighted that these outstanding individuals have been recognised for their deep commitment to public service and dedication to keeping their local communities safe”.

She has both a BA in Criminology, which she completed whilst on a basketball scholarship to the USA, and an MA in Criminology.

Nancie is a farmer’s daughter and swore that she would always work with a pen, after spending too much time with a shovel at the wrong end of a cow!
