More resources for Gibraltar police

  • The force will gain an extra 50 officers over the next three years

The Royal Gibraltar Police force will be boosted by an additional 50 officers of different ranks over the next three years, to a total of 291, and the government has also commissioned a work stream which will enable 24 officers who are currently engaged in support roles to join those in frontline policing.

The RGP had requested further resources after pointing out that new challenges nowadays need an increasingly sophisticated response.
