Martin Barber

Business Development Manager

Martin joined Police Insure in March 2019 following a slightly unusual career path having served in the Emergency Services with both the Police and Fire Service. Martin retired from Cheshire Constabulary in 2011 having held a variety of operational Uniform roles in Macclesfield, Halton and Warrington as well as at the Force Training Centre. Martin was later seconded "out of Force" for 3 years to National Police Training and on his return lead the Headquarters based strategic Community Safety Team playing a key role in the Force's implementation and delivery of its response to the Crime and Disorder Act plus the subsequent development of the key "Partnership Inspector" role finally retiring as Inspector with responsibility for the delivery of Custody Services.

On retirement from Cheshire Constabulary Martin immediately took up his post with Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service (GMFRS) as Community Safety Manager overseeing the local delivery of risk based fire prevention and community safety interventions within the diverse communities across Greater Manchester as well as developing a variety of "partnerships" with other key organisations and agencies to enhance the delivery of the GMFRS "Safe and Well" offer. Martin "retired" (again!!) in August 2017. On accepting the role with Police Insure Martin commented "I'm really looking forward to working again with colleagues within the wider Police "family" across the North West region and relish the opportunity to be able to offer high quality products and services supported by readily accessible, knowledgeable and helpful staff with a fundamental focus on excellent customer care."
