Your top 10 detectives…

We asked delegates at the Police Federation National Detectives Forum awards who their favourite detectives were, and here's what they told us...

We were proud to sponsor the Police Federation National Detectives Forum awards in October and recognise the enormous contribution detectives make to Policing. 

As part of the forum, we ran an exclusive competition to win a luxury weekend city break for two. We asked people who their favourite detectives were - and here's their top 10 (although Scooby Doo, Tin Tin, Dangermouse and Hong Kong Fuey also made it into the running with a couple of votes each!):

1. Sherlock Holmes

2. Columbo

3. Gene Hunt

4. Morse

5. Jack Frost

6. Miss Marple

7. Jane Tennison/Inspector Clouseau

8. Poirot /Inspector Gadget

9. Luther

10. Rachel Bailey/Jack Reagan

And the winner is…

Lucky DS Jayne Walker, from Hampshire Police, won our competition prize of a luxury weekend for two, with return flights, two nights' accommodation, breakfast, airport transfers and travel insurance.

When we called Jayne to give her the good news, she was initially delighted but when the confirmation email we sent her got lost in her mailbox, she began to worry that she'd been pranked by her colleagues! A quick phone call to us reassured her that she had genuinely won a competition.
