Anthony HollowayThe search for Clearwater’s next Chief of Police came to an end on January 11th. Beating out over 100 other applicants for the position, Anthony “Tony” Holloway has been named as Clearwater’s next Chief of Police and retiring Chief Sid Klein’s successor.

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.
