James Wileman is the Acting/Deputy Chief Officer of the States of Jersey Police.
James was appointed to the rank in August 2018 having spent much of his career in Uniform Policing.
James is a locally-born Officer and was educated at Victoria College before studying for a business degree in the UK, later joining the Police in 2003.
In 2011 he became the first Channel Island officer to earn a place on the national High Potential Development Scheme, run each year by the College of Policing, where a small number of officers are selected from across the UK and trained to become senior officers of the future.
Since joining the scheme he has completed a Post-graduate diploma in Police Leadership and Management and a Masters degree through Warwick Business School.
In 2014, James was seconded to the City of London Police for seven months where he worked as part of the Uniform Policing Management team. During that time he held several senior roles in the command of events, both as a Silver and Bronze Commander, most notably having responsibility for the iconic Tower Bridge section of the London Marathon; the Embankment and Westminster section of the 2014 Tour-de-France; and worked at the 2014 FA Cup Final at Wembley. Building upon his experience in London, James is a Gold Commander for most local events and led the policing response to the Island Games in 2015. Following the completion of several projects and reviews, James received a Commendation for his work in London.
James is a nationally accredited Tactical and Strategic Firearms Commander for both spontaneous and pre-planned incidents. In 2018 James became the first local police officer to successfully sit and complete the Strategic Command Course, the gateway qualification to Chief Officer ranks across the British Isles.
James is a member of the Chartered Management Institute and the Institute of Directors in Jersey. He is married to Emma and has two daughters.
