In 2007 as Chief Inspector, he led the roll out of Neighbourhood Policing and Business and Workforce Modernisation of the CID in Hull, introducing the roles of PCSO and Investigating Officers.
As Detective Superintendent he led the implementation of the Force CID change programme before achieving the rank of Chief Superintendent and becoming Divisional Commander for the City of Hull.
In 2015 when the ‘One Force’ model was implemented Scott was given responsibility for Communities Command Forcewide. Working with a host of partners and key stakeholders he has been influential in embedding a strong Community Policing capability within the force. Scott has been integral in the birth of multi-agency Early Intervention Hubs within the identified super output areas within the force area which have already started to organically evolve.
In February 2017 he was promoted to Temporary Assistant Chief Constable Communities and Partnerships. He has responsibility for both the Communities Command and the Command HUB. He has clear aspirations to build on previous work and make Humberside one of the national leading lights for their Community Policing brand.
