Following the publication of the Independent Jersey Care Inquiry in 2017, the States of Jersey Police wanted to make their own personal organisational pledge to the Island’s children and young people. One year on and they have officially published their pledge.
Consideration was given to the Children’s Commissioner’s Island wide survey results which helped shape the theme for the pledges and by using feedback from that and other consultation, including the Youth Voice project with the Jersey Youth Service, SOJP have worked with partners and key stakeholders to craft their pledges of which there are 10.
These 10 pledges are aligned to the emerging States children and young people plan and are made up of 4 sections;
- To grow up safely,
- To live healthy lives,
- To learn and achieve and
- To be seen and heard.
60 school children from local primary schools have been invited to police HQ tomorrow, 3rd July, to hear the pledges being delivered by the senior management team. The children will meet some of the staff and enjoy a healthy lunch, kindly donated by the Co-Op, M&S and Waitrose and will also enjoy a tour of police HQ by visiting the Force Control Room, Custody Suite and Scientific Services.
