Gerald Leonard Fuller was born in 1925 and joined the Hertfordshire Police Force at the age of 23.
His Service record shows that he was just over 5 ft 9, with hazel eyes and a scar under his left eye.
While still a Police Constable, probably in the late 1950s or early 1960s, he was photographed for the London Evening Standard riding the first wireless-equipped motorcycle to be used in the Hertfordshire Police. PC Fuller carried out his road-patrol duties on the bike for a month’s experimental period.
Shortly after this he was promoted to Detective Sergeant.

In November 1962 he took his qualifying exams for promotion. Subjects covered were: Law, practice and procedure in relation to crime; Law, practice and procedure in relation to traffic; Law practice and procedure in relation to general police duties; and Administration and organisation. He passed each subject and in February 1963 received notification from the Hertfordshire Constabulary that he had qualified to be an Inspector.
