Lifting drain covers, checking voids and keeping the public safe -- it’s been a busy couple of days for our specially trained Licensed Search Officers.
Ahead of this evening’s Essential Services Coronation Parade, the area has been searched from top to bottom by a combined team of Royal Gibraltar Police and Gibraltar Defence Police search officers.
They were also joined by none other than Koki, the GDP’s explosives detection dog!
During the search, literally no stone is left unturned to make sure that the area is completely safe.
Prior to joining the specialist department, our LSOs must have successfully passed an intensive 5-day course approved by the UK's College of Policing.
RGP and GDP officers often work together as a unit ahead of big events, to find missing persons or to recover evidence.
So, here are a few photos of both forces working together yesterday and this morning.
And in case you want to watch the parade later, it starts at Market Palace around 5.40pm, before making its way into Casemates Square, along Main Street, before halting at Convent Place around 15/20 minutes later for an Inspection and a salute. They will then march off into Governor’s Lane.
In the parade are members of British Forces Gibraltar and representatives of the Rock’s various essential services.
