Chief Officer Retirement

Having completed 37 years in policing serving in 4 great forces, Sussex, Kent, City of London and Jersey I have decided to retire.

This September marks my normal retirement age of 60 as well as being the 20th anniversary of my appointment as a Chief Officer, making me by far the longest serving Chief in Great Britain.

Now that we are occupying our new HQ I feel that I have met all the goals and challenges I set myself when I arrived in Jersey at the beginning of 2011.  I feel very proud of all that I have achieved with my team and I hope that the public have noticed a difference in how policing is delivered as well as feeling safer than ever before.

I wish to thank the people of Jersey for their fantastic support during my time in office and I will miss meeting them on my daily patrol.  I will also miss my wonderful team of officers and support staff for whom I have developed a deep affection.  They are true professionals and work hard to keep us safe 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.  We should all be very proud of them.

Mike Bowron, QPM
