Detective Superintendent Steve Talbot has brought a 30 year career in policing to an end.

The Sheffield Telegraph reports the retirement last week of South Yorkshire’s most senior detective.

As South Yorkshire Police’s Head of CID for the past six years, Detective Superintendent Steve Talbot oversaw all of the service’s criminal investigations, but that’s just a small part of a long career that saw him lead many major investigations for the force.

He studied for an MA in Criminology here at the University of Leicester, graduating with a distinction in 1995. During his career he received seven Crown Court Judge’s Commendations and one Crime Committee Commendation from the Association of Chief Police Officers.
