Burd is a qualified chartered accountant, and was chairman of the Hertfordshire Association of Chief Finance Officers in 2001. She is also a member of the ACCA Public Sector Technical Issues Committee, and Public Sector Society.

She is the first woman to take up the post.

Burd said she is relishing the ‘challenges ahead’ and is looking forward to changing the way that finance services supports front line policing.

She will start the role, which Keith Luck, director of resources, described as ‘probably the most difficult of its kind in the police service,’ on 17 March.
