"INDEPENDENT Police Authority? Whatever"
Jersey Police Authority has appointed four islanders to the independent body that will oversee the police.
Andrew Cornish, Jason Lane, Aston Roberts and Rui Tremoceiro will join Senator Sarah Ferguson and Deputy Judy Martin on the board.
The four have been chosen by Senator Ian Le Marquand and Jonathan White.
Senator Le Marquand said: "I am delighted that such a broadly representative group of people [has] now been appointed."
The police authority is an independent body, which will be responsible for the oversight of the States of Jersey Police ensuring it delivers key aims and objectives and maintains an efficient and effective service.
The authority will also provide a link between the Home Affairs Minister and the States of Jersey Police.
JPA Chairman Jonathan White said: "Each member brings a different set of skills which will enable us to work constructively with the States of Jersey Police and the Home Affairs Minister and those around him."
