MERSEY CHIEF CONSTABLE ON N. IRELAND JOB SHORTLIST.

MERSEYSIDE'S Chief Constable is on the shortlist to become the new police chief of Northern Ireland.

Ber nard Hogan-Howe is one of five names up for the high-pressure post.

Current incumbent Sir Hugh Orde is set to leave to take up the role of president of the Association of Chief Police Officers.

He has said he will not vacate his position until his successor has been found.

Interviews for the pounds 183,954-a-year post will take place in August.

Also on the list are Jim Gamble, chief executive of the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP); Matt Baggott, Chief Constable of Leicestershire; Durham Chief Constable Jon Stoddart; and Paul West, Chief Constable of West Mercia.

They will be interviewed by six senior members of the Northern Ireland Policing Board before the final appointment will have to be approved by the Secretary of State.

The ECHO understands Mr Hogan-Howe is also down to the final two for the position of Deputy Commissioner of the Met.

He missed out on the top job at the London force earlier this year when, after getting to the final four, Sir Paul Stephenson was appointed.

He took over as Merseyside chief constable in 2004 and brought in a "Total War on Crime".
