DCC Hyde,who was awarded the medal in the Queen’s 2012 Birthday Honours, has had a varied career covering detective and uniform posts while serving in four forces across the country.
In 1983 he joined Avon and Somerset Constabulary culminating in his final role as head of drugs and crime squads. In 1997 he joined West Yorkshire Police on promotion to detective superintendent and thereafter as chief superintendent he worked as the divisional commander in Bradford and head of the training centre.
He was promoted to Assistant Chief Constable of West Midlands Police in 2004.
In 2009 he became the DCC of Cumbria Constabulary and is due to retire on December 31.

He also was one of the architects for the creation of the Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP).
