Jersey Police Join National Anti-Corruption Reporting Service

Jersey Police have joined a UK wide anti-corruption and abuse reporting service.

Run by the independent charity Crimestoppers, it provides an anonymous and confidential route to reporting concerns about criminal behaviour by police officers and staff.

The Police Anti-Corruption and Abuse Reporting Service covers information relating to officers and staff who:

• Provide information or influence in return for money or favours.

• Use their policing position for personal advantage - whether financial or otherwise.

• Cross professional boundaries or abuse their position for sexual purposes.

• Abuse or control their partner, or those they have a relationship with.

• Engage in racist, homophobic, misogynistic or disablist conduct, on or off duty, in person or online.

Crimestoppers takes reports relating to any police force in the UK as well as States of Jersey Police.

The information can relate to the conduct of staff whether they are on or off duty, online or in person.

Reports can be submitted online www.reportpoliceabuse.co.uk and telephone calls are free on the 0800 555 111 number.

People making a report to the service can choose to remain anonymous.

Crimestoppers will pass the information it is given to the States of Jersey Police’s Professional Standards department, who will assess it.

They may then pass the information to specialist detectives to begin an investigation, take steps to safeguard someone at risk or in danger, or record the information to inform future investigations.

Police Chief Robin Smith says it reflects the force's determination to uphold the highest standards of integrity and professionalism.

"There is never any room for complacency where corruption and abuse are concerned.”
