The investigation has been led by Wiltshire Police on behalf of the Police Service and has now concluded. The findings were released officially by Wiltshire Police today 5th October 2017.

Detective Superintendent Stewart Gull said: “We can confirm that Jersey is one of the fourteen police areas that featured as part of this investigation and that a total of four allegations were reported to have occurred locally.

“These allegations were received between 2015 and 2016 and referred to Wiltshire Police for investigation as part of Operation Conifer.
