Superintendent Barry Halliday
PA commander - Milton Keynes
Detective Superintendent Barry Halliday took over the role of Milton Keynes Local Police Area Commander in April 2012. Barry’s previous role as Head of Force CID Investigations was a post he thoroughly enjoyed but is delighted to be returning to the city in which he learnt so much.
Upon joining Thames Valley Police on the 13 April 1987, he was a beat bobby on the Lakes Estate. He spent five years in that role before specialising in detecting crime in the city. Barry also worked as a Detective Sergeant, Inspector and a Chief Inspector in the city, successfully formulating and leading operations such as Operation Drawbridge, an initiative to combat burglary in 1999 and the anti-drugs operation code-named Operation Dawning in 1998.
Since leaving Milton Keynes he has worked within the Serious Crime Unit and Major Crime as a senior investigating officer. Barry and his team solved the Vicky Thompson murder which occurred over ten years previously this being the first ever conviction following the trial of a man who was initially acquitted of the murder and was subsequently re-arrested and charged.
