Public Protection Unit

The States of Jersey Police's Public Protection Department is responsible for investigating incidents of child abuse, vulnerable adult abuse, including domestic violence, safeguarding vulnerable people in Jersey and working with other agencies to manage the supervision of offenders in our community using Jersey Multi Agency Public Protection Arrangements (JMAPPA).

Officers from the Public Protection Department receive specialist training on how to interview children, young people and vulnerable adults, balancing the gathering of evidence with a concern for their welfare during the interview process.

In the Domestic Violence Unit officers ensure that victims of abuse get the best service by ensuring that domestic abuse incidents are accurately risk assessed as soon as possible after the incident. Once assessed officers can then implement safeguarding around the victim, ensuring that their safety is maintained by either removing the risk, avoiding the risk, reducing the risk or accepting the risk. This will ensure that victims of domestic abuse receive the best possible service from the Police and partner agencies.

The team works to ensure the safety and protection of the most vulnerable people in our communities, working with partner agencies to target offenders and support victims.
