Sergeant promotion at RGP
A Royal Gibraltar Police officer was promoted to the rank of Sergeant on Wednesday.
Detective Constable Kyle Golledge, who was in the Criminal Investigation Department, will now move to a new role as a Sergeant in a uniformed Response Team.
Commissioner of Police Richard Ullger announced the news on Wednesday morning, after 15 police officers applied for the position last Monday.
Sgt Golledge, 30, a dad of one, was chosen as the successful candidate after recommendations made by a promotion board, which consisted of representatives from the Royal Gibraltar Police, HM Government of Gibraltar and the Gibraltar Police Authority.
Sgt Golledge joined the RGP in 2012 and was awarded Best All Round Recruit in his training school. He first worked as a uniformed Response Team officer, before he became Constable of the Year in 2014.
He then joined Crime and Protective Services in 2015 as a Detective Constable in CID. He assisted in all of the Crime departments before qualifying as a Licensed Search Officer in 2019.
The Commissioner said: “I’d like to congratulate Kyle in his promotion to Sergeant and encourage those who have been unsuccessful to continue to work hard towards developing themselves and to compete for future promotions.”
