David Bogle was born in the volatile community of Waterhouse in a section of the community known as ‘Moscow.’ At the age of six he moved with his mother to live with his father in Tavares Gardens, more affectionately known as Payne Land. At fifteen years, whilst a fourth form student at St. George’s College, Sergeant Bogle returned to live in Waterhouse along with his mother and younger sister where he remained until joining the Jamaica Constabulary Force. A graduate of St. George’s College, the University of the West Indies and the University of Technology, Sergeant Bogle has successfully read for two undergraduate degrees, with the latest being in Law. His journey in advocacy began in high school wherein he was elected House Captain and President of the Debating Society. He later matriculated into the University of the West Indies, Mona campus wherein he was selected on the inaugural Faculty of Social Sciences Student/Staff Liaison Committee, as well as being elected Public Relations Officer of the University’s Debating Society. At the community level Sergeant Bogle served on the Waterhouse Community Development Committee (CDC) as Chairman before joining the Constabulary.
Whilst at the National Police College of Jamaica (then Jamaica Police Academy) he served as Class Captain and was awarded ‘Best Leadership Qualities’ for Batch 91 at his graduation exercise. Sergeant Bogle has served the Mobile Reserve and the National Intelligence, and is currently serving the St. Catherine South Division. A certified Defense Assistant at the Jamaica Police Federation, Sergeant Bogle has never lost a case at the Court of Enquiry or the Orderly Room. He has assisted in the writing of the JCF’s email policy as well as writing several responses for members who have been served notices by administration.
An accomplished public speaker, Sergeant Bogle has been very vocal on issues that affect the Rank & File members of the Constabulary. He has had his fair share of run-ins with administration, but remains respectful and loyal to the men and women of the Constabulary. Before joining the St. Catherine South Division, Sergeant Bogle has served as Chairman of the Sergeants’ and Joint Branch Boards of the National Intelligence Bureau. An avid reader and ardent supporter of the English Premier League club Arsenal FC, he enjoys playing football, reading, and spending time with family and friends, and is never too busy to treat with any issue that affects a member. He lives by the mantra “Liberate the minds of men and ultimately you will liberate the bodies of men.” – Marcus Garvey.
