"Victims Slowly Plucking Up Courage"

Big jump in police complaints

Jersey's Police Complaints authority handled twice as many complaints last year than they did in 2010.

Their latest report shows they investigated 35 incidents involving States or Honorary officers.

But, they say it's too early to say whether this rise is part of a continuing trend.

They also say the island's laws need to be changed so the authority can do their job more effectively.

Amongst the things they want to see are:

- A formalising of the process for managing and supervising the investigation of complaints against the Chief Officer and Deputy Chief Officer.

- A more progressive disciplinary process allowing for formal verbal and written warnings. At the moment any formal disciplinary action requires a Hearing.

- Development of a fast-tracking process for extreme cases where the evidence is incontrovertible.

- Including in the Police Code a responsibility on police officers to challenge and report any improper conduct on the part of another officer.

  10. Another jersey sex offender was jailed 2 weeks ago, relating to a crime against a minor. I have not seen or heard anything in local media, had to get the info word of mouth. Another paedophile goes unnamed in jersey. He may have been jailed but, can anyone tell me, why the secrecy ?
