Tutor Constable, Kulvinder Gosal, recently arrived at St Helena to take up her new role with the St Helena Police.
Kulvinder has been appointed on a two-year contract and her main duty will require her to support the Police Constables in developing the required skills of a Police Officer by working alongside them to identify individual learning and development needs.
I had completed quite a lot of roles within the Police Service in my 32-year career as a Police Officer and enjoyed every aspect of being a Police Officer. When I saw St Helena Police were recruiting a Tutor Constable I was immediately attracted to the role that would allow me to share my experiences and skills. In addition, I was able to carry out my duties on a tropical Island as friendly as St Helena.
I am really looking forward to a new challenge in a new and developing environment. I hope to transfer my skills and knowledge I gained in the UK to better equip local officers to meet their new challenges. I am looking forward to meeting my Police colleagues and hope to learn much from them too.
Kulvinder studied to A-level standard and joined the Police Service in West Yorkshire, UK in 1984. Since then, Kulvinder has undertaken posts such as Response Policing, Community Policing, CID, Child Protection & Safeguarding, training and tutoring in both uniform roles and CID roles.
Chief Inspector, Steve Riley, added:
I am delighted to welcome Kulvinder to the Police Directorate. She has a wealth of experience in Policing across a variety of roles and a proven track record of being able to coach and mentor officers. She has settled in really well and I have no doubt that she will contribute immensely to the development of local officers over the next two years.
