Nationwide, women have been sharing their experiences online of feeling unsafe at one time or another and the mood of the nation right now is demanding that this serious issue be addressed.
Islanders should feel safe to walk in Jersey if they chose to go out alone, no one should feel scared or intimidated, harassed or objectified at any time.
Superintendent Alison Fossey said: “We are aware that these types of incidents still remain hugely under-reported, no one should have to deal with this type of behaviour from others. It’s important to not accept unacceptable behaviour, don’t let it hide in our community. Report it. By reporting it, we can help to stop it.”
Chief of Police, Robin Smith said: “The tragic events in England over the last week or so have understandably heightened anxiety. SOJP will do all in their power to reassure islanders and sign-post victims to the support agencies that are here to help. Please do not hesitate to contact SOJP if you fear for your safety, or need some help and advice.”
