Police commanders Jeff Loy and Gary Worboys will be appointed deputy commissioners by state cabinet.
They will join Cath Burn and Dave Hudson as deputies in the new police restructure after their appointments are ratified by cabinet.
Mr Loy was the Police Association’s choice for commissioner when Andrew Scipione retired and has been in charge of Northern Region, while Mr Worboys has been in charge of Southern Region.
Under the deputy commissioner restructure Mr Loy will be Deputy Commissioner (City) and Mr Worboys Deputy Commissioner (Country).
The appointment of Mr Loy, 56, and Mr Worboys, 54, completes the restructure which started with the appointment of Mick Fuller as Commissioner last month.
The police union welcomed the appointment of the new deputy commissioners, saying they are “the right people in the right roles”.
“These two officers are real people persons, with a track record in supporting police officers and being strong advocates of the policing profession,” said Tony King, acting president of the Police Association of NSW.
“They are the right people in the right roles to support and deliver community safety and crime prevention strategies.
“Between them they have years of frontline experience building relationships through trust.”
