Jane Stichbury was a successful Chief Constable of Dorset for five years, and continues to serve the county by chairing an important NHS Foundation Trust.
We at Dorset Life rather missed a trick between 1999 and 2004, when Jane Stichbury was Chief Constable of the county's police force, because we never got around to interviewing her for this series. By the time we would have done, she had been transferred to higher things as one of Her Majesty's Inspectors of Constabulary with the job of inspecting sixteen forces in the south of England and responsibility for specific aspects of policing nationwide. Happily, we have a second bite at the cherry because since April she has had a job back in the county, as Chairman of The Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

It had something of the 'Large and Little Show' about it, since Dirk is a tall man and broad in proportion, whereas Jane Stichbury's physique is best described as 'petite'.

Policing Dorset was naturally very different from policing London. As usual, the Dorset force was under-resourced and it covered a wide geographical area, with the added challenge of balancing the requirements of the countryside against those of the conurbation. Then there was a party conference every year at the BIC, with all the security implications at a time of raised terrorist threat. But Jane Stichbury did not lose sight of her basic policy aims, among which were to respond to local people, to create more of a performance culture, especially in crime prevention, and to help the organisation position itself for the future by listening to staff and encouraging their development. With the last of these in mind, she would spend time as often as possible with officers on the front line.
Even when she had reached the top, Jane's broad view of policing had not changed since it attracted her as a career fresh from university: its potential to make a difference. 'I believe that the police can act as a catalyst for many other agencies,' she says. 'One must be optimistic that education can change society and in the widest sense the police can contribute to that, alongside their enforcement role.' In addition, her career had taught Jane much about the skills of leadership, and during her time in Dorset she was in charge of the Association of Chief Police Officers Personnel Management Business Area. Later, when she was an HMIC, she saw her job as not just inspecting and assessing but trying to encourage and inspire in a constructive way.
She has brought the same style and the same view of public service to her work at the NHS Foundation Trust. 'Some people say what a difference there must be between the police and the NHS, but both are public service bodies and in fact there are many similarities. Each is in its own way a very complex organisation dealing with some very sensitive issues.' Jane's job itself has its own complexities: she chairs both the Governors, who represent the Trust's members and the public and are responsible for shaping strategy, and the Board, who are responsible for putting that strategy into practice. Her role is part-time and does not involve day-to-day administration but is about, as she puts it, 'offering support but also standing back'. Having said that, she thinks it important to 'go walkabout' around the hospital frequently - an echo of the time she would spend with front-line officers when she was Chief Constable.

'When the hospital job came up, it was in the public service and in Dorset, so it couldn't have been better,' smiles Jane. She still lives with her husband, a retired Met detective, in the house in Ashley Heath which she bought when she was appointed Chief Constable; even when she was travelling a lot as an HMIC, she preferred to keep her Dorset base and to live out of a suitcase when necessary.
When Boris Johnson dispensed with Sir Ian Blair's services as Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police in 2008, there was speculation that Jane Stichbury might get the job of Britain's most senior police officer; it has been Dorset's gain that it remained no more than speculation.
