Kingston borough commander finally earns his stripes
Kingston's Borough commander Glen Tunstall has officially earned his stripes seven months after his promotion.
His elevation to the top in July despite being a superintendent, only the second highest rank in the Metropolitan Police, was said to have broken a promise by the Met to London councils to give the role sufficient clout.
Kingston police tweeted the news last night saying: "Our congratulations goes to Glenn Tunstall who remains at Kingston after being promoted to Chief Superintendent."
After he was appointed he said: "If there was one borough where I wanted to be borough commander it was Kingston.
“There is so many opportunities working here, and as a sergeant I got to understand the workings of the borough.
“It’s a mandatory posting of two years. I have got three-and-a-half years left [before he is allowed to retire after 30 years’ service] and I would be happy to stay for the rest of that time."
