Holloway is currently the Chief of Police of Somerville, MA. A native of Tampa Bay, Halloway began his law enforcement career as a Clearwater patrol officer in 1986. During his 22 years in the Clearwater Police Department, Holloway served in nearly every division other than the Office of Professional Standards, and worked as a narcotics detective. He has 19 years of experience in community policing.
In 2007, Holloway retired from the Clearwater Police Department as a Captain, taking his current job as Chief of Police of Somerville, a city outside Boston with a population of 77,000.
"Tony Holloway emerged as the best fit from my perspective due to many facets. Since leaving Clearwater to be the Chief in Somerville, Tony has gained more experience in labor relations and implemented successful changes." said City Manager Bill Horne. "It has been a consistent observation that Tony is approachable but can make difficult decisions when required."
Police Chief Sid Klein will retire on February 26th after 29 years of service, and Holloway will take over as head of the department at that time.
