Superintendent Marc Tarbit starts in his new role as LPA Commander for Milton Keynes today (2/12).
Supt Tarbit joined Thames Valley Police in 1998. Marc has performed both uniform and detective roles in Oxford, where he most recently worked as the Deputy LPA Commander for the past three years. Early in his career, he was afforded the opportunity to spend time with the neighbourhood team in Toronto Police to learn more about their methods of community engagement and problem solving.
In 2013, Marc was promoted to Detective Chief Inspector as the Head of the Force Intelligence Bureau and led on improving the police response to tackling organised crime. Then, as a Temporary Detective Superintendent, he worked as the Head of Intelligence for over a year and was responsible for improving collaboration between TVP and the South East Regional Organised Crime Unit. During this time, Marc also gained a Masters Degree from Cambridge University in Criminology and Police Leadership, strengthening his interest in evidence-based policing.

Speaking about his new appointment Supt Tarbit said: “I am delighted to be working in the dynamic and progressive area of Milton Keynes. I am committed to policing as a public service and am looking forward to building on existing partnerships to prevent crime and keep Milton Keynes a safe place to live and work.
“I want to make sure that we continue to provide a high quality service to victims of crime and am particularly keen to focus on tackling serious violence and those crimes that have a significant impact on our communities.”
