The State Liberals have welcomed the appointment of Deputy Police Commissioner Grant Stevens as South Australia's new Police Commissioner.

"Mr Stevens has an outstanding record as a police officer and has served in a number of senior and leadership roles," said Shadow Police Minister John Gardner.

"Since 2012, he has been South Australia's Deputy Commissioner and has acted as the Commissioner for Police during that time as well.

"On behalf of the State Liberal team, I congratulate Mr Stevens on his promotion to Commissioner and thank outgoing Commissioner Gary Burns on his hard work in the role over the past few years."
