Martin Richards, who served as Wiltshire's chief before joining Sussex, will step down in March following a policing career spanning 32 years. He said: "This is not a decision I have taken lightly. My career as a police officer has been a rewarding one and it has been a particular privilege to serve as Chief Constable of Sussex."
