Jerry Barber is a main character in the ABC police drama series Rookie Blue. He is portrayed by Noam Jenkins.


Sexy smooth talking Detective Barber took his work easy, but was a passionate and caring police officer who died having vigorous parties, dedicated to the job and his colleagues. He hung out with the other officers down at the Black Penny and seemed to lead a relatively happy life. Unfortunately however, he was just coming out of a seemingly nasty divorce, and right into a relationship with single mother Officer Traci Nash. He proposed to her early on, however the relationship was short lived. Detective Barber was fatally stabbed while attempting to question a suspect relating to the abduction of Officer Gail Peck. He later died at the hospital.



Jerry was an easy-going guy, always quick with humour and able to make friends. He was very smart, often closing a great deal of cases for the department and good with his informants. Jerry was a romantic at heart, deeply in love with Traci Nash, and gave her a knife with the inscription "Marry Me" as a reference to the first gift he ever gave her, a knife. He was a passionate and caring man, giving his all in every situation and generous with gift giving.

While he was a thoughtful man, he had made many mistakes in his life. He cheated on his ex-wife, blaming the fact that she had fallen out of love with him. His immaturity in these situations was a flaw that recognized and had been attempting to change about himself, often getting in trouble due to his passion overtaking him resulting in ill-timed or worded arguments.
