Passing-Out Parade for new officers

Jersey’s newest police recruits are preparing to return to Jersey as fully fledged officers after completing their ten weeks of training at the Norfolk Constabulary training site in Hethersett.

All ten officers were sworn in at the Royal Court in October before they headed off to complete their training off-island alongside officers from both Norfolk and Suffolk.

Yesterday [Tuesday 21 December] they took part in their official passing-out parade in Norfolk, with several members of the States of Jersey Police present, including Chief Officer Robin Smith.

The Pass Out this year is a more scaled down, socially distanced one due to the situation in the UK, but is an important part of the role and recognises the challenging training that all the officers have undertaken. It is also a proud moment for the officers and their families and friends to share.

The ten week programme includes a range of classroom based work, in addition to First Aid and Officer Safety Training. Their training also includes many role play scenarios in a purpose built skills house and the many other aspects which make up the role of a police constable.

The officers are: PC Vito Da Conceicao, PC Peter Faudemer, PC Lauren Pollock, PC Daniel Tree, PC Cherry Brough, PC Chloe Jones, PC Jerry Sexton, PC Jed Blackburn, PC Ruth Greet and PC Joel Dudley. They will be joining their respective shifts in January after a short local procedure course.

Acting Chief Inspector Mark Hafey said: “It’s always a proud moment when we bring new officers into the force. They have undertaken some world-class training with Norfolk Constabulary and we look forward to welcoming them back in January to commence supervised frontline duties.”
