Chief's Statement

Following the publication of the Jersey Independent Care Inquiry on Monday 3rd July, Mike Bowron QPM, Chief of Police issued this statement.

"This has been a very thorough inquiry and SoJP and the other agencies involved need to consider and embrace the recommendations made within it.

It is clear multi-agency responses to allegations of abuse in the past were not of the high standards we expect today - important lessons have been learned.

The SoJP will continue to play a full and active role in protecting the most vulnerable in our community, including children and young people. We can only do that in partnership – no one generally has the complete picture – this remains ‘everyone’s business.’ 

We now see more victims coming forward than ever before, which demonstrates an increased trust and confidence in the criminal justice system. Victims of historical abuse continue to come forward – perpetrators are held to account and prosecuted. 

We will continue to listen to victims of historical abuse and where feasible bring offenders to justice – whilst also focussing very much on today’s victims and the prevention of tomorrows’."
