Handful of arrests at Jersey Live

It was a relatively trouble-free 10th anniversary Jersey Live for officers with only five arrests over the course of the weekend.
 
Officers from the States of Jersey Police and the Honorary Police were based at the site throughout the weekend, along with members of the newly formed Licensing Support Team, to help festival g"rs and ensure everyone had a great time.
 
During the course of the weekend only a handful of arrests were made which were related to Jersey Live. These were “
 
 Two arrested for drunk and disorderly
 Three arrested for refusing to obey
 
All five have been warned for Parish Hall Enquiries.
 
Acting Chief Inspector Alan Williamson, who was in charge of the policing at Jersey Live, said: "Every year Jersey Live has gone from strength to strength and as you can see from the small number of minor arrests this year's was a particularly peaceful and stress-free event from a policing point of view.
 
"We would like to thank everyone that attended the event and of course the organisers who did a sterling job.
 
Officers from CID were also at the event talking to people about our current Ask.Listen.Respect campaign and giving out orange wristbands with the website details on, this is to encourage people visit our site and again raise awareness of the on-going Operation Amber campaign.
 
In total 5000 wristbands were given out to adults and it was encouraging to see some many being worn throughout the two days.
 
Inspector Steve Langford said: "The rape campaign we are currently running has a very hard-hitting message and it was a good opportunity for us to talk to people about it including adults and parents with their children.
 
"I have to say there was extremely positive feedback from many people who stopped to speak to us who wanted to know more and to collect a free wristband that we were giving out.
