Temporary Assistant Chief Constable (T/ACC) Bobby Singleton joined the Police Service of Northern Ireland as one of the then new service’s first recruits in November 2001.
Over the course of the last nineteen years he has gained a broad range of policing experience in uniform community policing roles, public order and public safety command and as a detective investigating sexual violence, terrorism and other serious and organised crime.
Between 2014 and 2016 as a uniform Superintendent he was responsible for leading the delivery of community policing services for the city of Belfast and as a firearms and public order commander led officers through a series of complex and challenging multi-agency operations.
From April of 2016 to May of 2019, then a Detective Superintendent, he was the service’s lead for drugs, Organised Crime and the then newly established Paramilitary Crime Task Force.
On promotion to Detective Chief Superintendent he was first appointed as head of PSNI’s Legacy Investigation Branch in May 2019 before taking up a role as the head of Executive Support in October 2020.
