Senior Detective To Become Evidence Custodian For St Joe PD

Posted 12 months ago

By John P Tretbar

SJPD patchDetective Paul Gatewood retired from the St Joseph Police Department on Friday, but isn’t going anywhere. The 22-year veteran will soon take a civilian job with the department as Evidence Custodian.

Gatewood has been the lead investigator on several recent homicide investigations in St Joseph.

“Honestly I hate to see him go,” said Captain Matt Rock.

“He’s a very skilled person and a top-notch guy.”

Filling the gap in the Detective Division will be patrol officer Chris Davis, who is currently at the top of the detective eligibility list at St Joe PD.
