Drug Squad

The Drug Squad is a pro-active unit that targets the criminals who cause the most harm in our society.

In particular, they focus on organised crime groups who conspire to arrange the supply and distribution of illegal drugs in Jersey.

They also play a key role in tackling the hard core of prolific offenders whose activities, notably in areas such as burglary and vehicle crime, can otherwise have a significant impact on community safety.

The States of Jersey Police are working closely with key partners and other jurisdictions to reduce the levels of illegal drugs in the island and disrupt and prevent criminal activity. 

Illegal drugs can often be linked to organised crime within our community. They are known to put a strain on the health service, the economy and can tear apart families. The states of Jersey Police are committed to protecting Jersey from these threats and continue to target those involved in drug related crime in order to reduce the risks that illegal drugs pose to the community. 

Organised crime can cover different serious crime types, some of which include; 

In January 2021, the States of Jersey Police re-introduced a Drug Squad, a dedicated team to focus on drug related investigations that impact the community. The team will continue to work closely with Jersey Customs and Immigration Service (JCIS) and the new Community Policing Team to disrupt organised crime groups targeting the island. 

There are four main objectives: 

PURSUE   Prosecuting and disrupting people engaged in serious and organised criminality 
PREVENT   Preventing people from engaging in serious and organised crime  
PROTECT   Increasing protection against serious and organised crime 
PREPARE   Reducing the impact of this criminality where it takes place
