The Monmouth line of Gouldings, often listed as Golding, would change their name to Golden within several generations.

I have no clue about the relationship of Police Chief Golden and William Goulding/Golding/Golder … but there are a ton of Goldens up that way … there were also many later arrivals of Goldens from various sources in the centuries after 1665 in this part of the country (New England).
