"By announcing my retirement now, the Police Authority has six months to find the right person to lead the force into 2011 and beyond," she said.

Ruth Rogers, chair of the Cambridgeshire Police Authority said: "Julie Spence has been a powerful force for improvement and development in Cambridgeshire. Her integrity and honesty is recognised by the public and by all those who work within the force.
