Jersey Map Design Competition 'Policing in My Parish'

We need your help!

Police Headquarters is a fantastic building and place to work but it’s got some really boring white walls.  We’re asking the amazing children of Jersey to help us brighten the place up by drawing a picture that shows your experiences of policing in your parish.  Police Sergeant Callum O’Connor explains more in the video below:

Greater Manchester Police have a map on the walls in their building like this:

We would love to have something similar in our station, all about Jersey and created by you!

The winner from each parish will be invited to Police Headquarters on 20 November 2019 for a special event to unveil the new Jersey map.

We can’t wait to see your entries and thank you for taking part.

Good luck!

Parish templates

Templates for each of the parishes are available below.  A3 size paper is the best size to give you the most amount of room to draw but we know that it won’t be possible for everyone to print that size so A4 is also fine.  Card will be the best to draw on but paper is also okay. 

Please ensure that you pick the correct size paper when printing – on most printers you do this by selecting ‘PRINT’ then selecting the ‘PROPERTIES’ option and finally ‘PAPER’.  There should be a drop-down many in that box that allows you to select the printing size that you want, be it A3 or A4.

You will see that the templates have ‘TOP’ written on them.  To make maximum use of the paper we’ve tilted some of the parish templates.  ‘TOP’ marks the top of the parish if you were looking at it on a map – ie the northern point of the parish.
