Chief Constable Michael Fuller was appointed six years ago
MPs have endorsed the appointment of the Chief Constable of Kent Police, Michael Fuller, for the role of Crown Prosecution Service chief inspector.
Mr Fuller was selected by Attorney General Baroness Scotland as her candidate for the post.
He was endorsed for the role by the Commons Justice Committee. A final decision lies with the government.
He joined the Metropolitan Police Service as a cadet in 1975 and has been Kent's chief constable for six years.
Following his endorsement, committee chairman, Sir Alan Beith, said of Mr Fuller: "We welcome his grasp of the need for independence, specialist expertise where necessary and for an understanding of the criminal justice system as a whole.
"We expect him to call upon all his experience-as a leader, manager and innovator as well as a police officer-in pursuing his new responsibilities."
