Christmas and New Year Patrols

Police will have extra officers on patrol over the next few weeks to help prevent violence and offending, offering reassurance to Islanders and Christmas revellers during the Festive period.

The night-time economy focus will see extra officers working together with licenced premises to ensure that those celebrating this Christmas do so safely and within the law.

Chief Inspector Chris Beechey, head of Community policing said: “We want people to have fun this Christmas and to enjoy their nights out safely; the message is clear, look out for each other, stay safe and don’t spoil your night by drinking too much.

“It’s our aim to ensure that everyone has a safe night out and we’ll be working alongside key stakeholders such as the Honorary Police and Street Pastors to ensure that everyone is safeguarded and supported.

Extra officers will be patrolling during the busy weekends before Christmas and over the New Year and in addition, St John’s Ambulance and Normandy Rescue will be providing medical cover for the Weighbridge and additional areas of St Helier and St Aubin in order to support frontline Ambulance operations.

Anyone who feels unsafe on a night out is urged to seek help immediately either from a member of staff in the venue or in an emergency, 999.
