Chief Anthony Holloway joined the Clearwater Police Department in 1985 as a patrol officer and earned a Bachelor of Arts degree (Business Management) in 1999 and his Master's degree (Business Administration) in 2001. During his career with the Clearwater Police Department, Chief Holloway served as a Patrol Officer, a Community Policing Specialist, an undercover Vice & Narcotics Detective, a Patrol Sergeant, a Detective Sergeant (Economic Crimes Unit), the Support Services Assistant Division Commander, and the Patrol Division Commander.

Upon Chief Holloway's retirement, he was selected as the Chief of Police (2007 - 2010) with the City of Somerville, Massachusetts which occupies slightly over 4-square miles with a dense population of 77,500.

The Clearwater Police Department is a fully accredited agency with the Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation, Inc. and is a national leader in the adaptation of computer technology to police work. The department has been in the forefront of addressing social problems and has been named one of the nation's safest cities.

Chief Holloway taught law enforcement to governmental, educational and community organizations throughout Florida. He also served as consultant/trainer to organizations such as the Department of Juvenile Justice, U.S. Department of Justice and St. Petersburg College.
