Caught on Camera

The States of Jersey Police are launching a new online initiative in the fight against crime.

Caught on Camera launches on Thursday 1st October and is a new section on the Force website that enables the public to identify persons or property wanted by the police.

The new sub-section of the website contains a gallery of images showing various people of interest that police would like to speak to in connection with a variety of offences including assault, burglary and shoplifting. The gallery will also contain images of property that needs to be located. These may be stolen items or items that could be of assistance to ongoing police investigations. Information from the public is submitted online and this can be done anonymously if desired.

Detective Inspector Craig Jackson said:

‘CCTV and other cameras play a fundamental role in investigating crime. We already use other channels, such as press releases to the media and our website to ask the public for help with identifying people in certain cases and this new gallery gives us another opportunity to do this. Most people nowadays have a Smart phone which helps to make this process so easy and it’s also a great way to involve the public and improve investigations when we do not know who a potential witness or suspect is.’

Many of the UK forces already use this type of technology and SoJP have modelled their version on a similar site used by West Yorkshire Police which has proved to be a successful tool in the work of the police.

Take a look at the new Caught on Camera section of our website.
