Section 40: Assistant chief constables

174.Section 40 makes similar provision in respect of assistant chief constables to that made in respect of deputy chief constables in section 39. The only difference is that a chief constable intending to increase the number of deputy chief constable posts must consult with the police and crime commissioner, but there is no such requirement in relation to assistant chief constable posts.
