The Gibraltar Services Police (GSP) is a civil police force which guards and enforces law on Ministry of Defence installations in Gibraltarmarker.

The Gibraltar Services Police is a statutory police force established under the Police Ordinance of the Laws of Gibraltar. The Chief Police Officer (currently Chief Superintendent John Durante) is appointed by the Governor of Gibraltar and is responsible to the Commander, British Forces Gibraltar.

In October 2004 the strength of the force was: 1 Chief Superintendent, 2 Chief Inspectors, 6 Inspectors, 15 Sergeants, 103 Constables, and 16 civilian staff.

Since 20 March 1997 the GSP has shared a purpose-built headquarters with the British Armed Forces Joint Provost and Security Unit (JPSU) at HMS Rooke.

Pay and conditions of the force are identical to those of the Ministry of Defence Police (MDP) in the United Kingdommarker, of which it is a direct equivalent. The Gibraltar Services Police Association represents the interests of constables and sergeants. Like the MDP, GSP officers are all trained in the use of firearms.

The force has a Marine Unit, founded in 1998, which comprises a sergeant and over twenty constables. It is charged with the seaward defence of Gibraltar's Royal Navy facilities and the warship moored in them, and also assists the Royal Gibraltar Police Marine Section with general security and enforcement patrols of waters surrounding Gibraltar. It operates two 15-metre motor launch (which replaced the original 10-metre launches in 2003) and a number of rigid-hulled inflatable boats (RHIBs).

The force seconds officers to the Gibraltar Co-ordinating Centre for Criminal Intelligence and Drugs (GCID).
