Statement concerning Jersey Sea Cadets


RELEASED TO MEDIA AT 16.51 PM ON TUESDAY 23 SEPTEMBER 2008

The States of Jersey Police can confirm that the former SIO of the historical abuse enquiry, Lenny Harper, did write to the Marine Society and Sea Cadets earlier in the year (6 August) to confirm that all lines of enquiry within the Jersey Sea Cadets in respect of historical abuse were complete, following an investigation into a number of allegations of historical abuse.

Following an investigation it was found that there was insufficient evidence on which to proceed. However, should any further information or evidence come to light this will be considered by the enquiry team.

Whilst the Jersey Sea Cadets were frequently referred to in connection with the historical abuse enquiry, it was not the organisation which was under investigation. The historic abuse enquiry was and still is focused on the investigation of allegations of abuse by individuals. 

The Force can confirm that the Jersey Sea Cadets have cooperated fully with the investigation.
