States of Jersey Police Service
Policing in Jersey is different to many other jurisdictions, the States of Jersey Police provide a service to the entire island. A Crown Dependency, International Finance Centre, island community and popular tourist destination, Jersey provides our police officers with significant diversity in their role. Our own Government and legislation means that our police force is largely self-sufficient and provides a range of functions, normally delivered by other services.
The scope of our police officers’ work means they are integrated into all areas of island life making a tangible difference at a personal level.
The support and training provided, follows this unique trend. Our officers are trained in specialist skills over and above their standard duties as required and can include Criminal Investigation, Community, Response, Public Protection, Firearms, Drugs Squad and Financial Crime.
As well as uniformed service, our police force often has opportunities to join the fight against a prevalent island challenge; Financial Crime, presenting interesting paths for those with varied backgrounds.
We are currently preparing for our next engagement of potential new team members and expect to start within the next few months. If you would like to find out more about joining us, then please email us so we can arrange a discussion.
Police Constable Transferee
States of Jersey Police are recruiting now for transferees from UK police forces to fill vacancies in our uniformed operational response roles. We are committed to making the most of your existing skills whilst offering you the opportunity to operate in a unique policing environment.
Jersey is the largest of the Channel Islands, with an area of 45 square miles. The Island combines a lively and cosmopolitan main town - home to our global finance sector - with sweeping, unspoilt beaches, fishing ports and rolling countryside. It's just 14 miles off the north-west coast of France, 85 miles south of the English coast and is very well served by air to a range of UK and international cities.
As a force, we serve a resident population of over 103,000 people as well as over 700,000 visitors each year.
Many of our officers are trained in specialist skills over and above those needed for their normal operational duties, which could be used at any time. These include firearms, search, surveillance, hostage negotiation, collision investigation and public order.
It's still the policing job you know and love but delivered in a unique and stunning environment with a slower pace of life.
