In 2008 he was promoted to Sergeant following which he undertook the deputy commander role at Wigston Police station.

On promotion to Inspector in 2015, Gavin took up the role as commander for the Eastern Counties Neighbourhood policing area.
On starting his new role Gavin said: "I am delighted to have taken up the position as the commander for the Eastern Counties Neighbourhood policing area. It is clear that there are already very strong community and partnership links across the area, something which I am particularly keen to maintain and build upon.
"Having previously worked in Neighbourhood policing I understand the need for effective communication links between the Police, our partners and the communities that we serve in order to identify and address problems and issues. Engagement and consultation are critical in achieving positive outcomes and I would implore communities to get in touch with their local officers to advise of any Neighbourhood policing issues they might be facing."
