Gary Frey promoted to Green River Police Department Patrol Sergeant position

The Green River Police Department has a new Patrol Sergeant. Sergeant Gary Frey was recently promoted to the position.

A pinning ceremony for Sergeant Frey took place during the April 2 City Council meeting. GRPD Chief Sean Sturlaugson explained that the recent promotion of Brad Halter to Captain opened up a sergeant position. The department did a few weeks of testing and had seven candidates apply for the position. While the choice of the new sergeant was competitive, as all the candidates were strong, Chief Sturlaugson said that Frey "rose to the top" and was chosen for the position.

Frey has been with the GRPD for almost six years, Sturlaugson explained, and has 19 years of experience.

"He spent numerous years crafting his skill," Chief Sturlaugson said of Frey.

He is a SWAT Team Leader, Firearms Coordinator, Field Training Officer, and part of the Crisis Response program. Frey has also received many awards, including a life-saving award, according to the GRPD.

"No one has more tactical knowledge than him," Sturlaugson said, describing Frey as a team leader who does a phenomenal job, as well as a "fantastic officer that excels at everything he does."
