JPA Chair is very pleased with the appointment of new Police Chief

Minister for Home Affairs Len Norman announced on Friday that Mr Robin Smith has been appointed as Jersey’s new Chief Officer for States of Jersey Police.

Dr Jason Lane, Chairman of the Jersey Police Authority, says: “Robin brings substantial command experience from Surrey, Sussex and the British Transport Police in driving and delivering change programmes. His experience as operational commander for the Manchester Arena bombing, among other high-profile incidents, is testimony to his skills and reputation. I have no doubt that this appointment will drive the force forward, building on the impressive work already achieved in delivering improved services to the public.”
