Two police officers from Jersey have been chosen to attend the King's Coronation.

Acting Detective Sergeant Patrick Forde and Detective Constable Pippa Le Mottee will be in London to help to make sure everything runs smoothly on Saturday (6 May),

The Coronation is expected to attract a large number of dignitaries and foreign leaders, as well as crowds of tens of thousands of people from around the world.

The officers will be working with their UK counterparts to keep attendees safe.

Police Chief Robin Smith  has called it an honour that SoJP will be part of such an historic event:

"It will be a proud moment for the force and a proud moment for me as Chief. I’m sure too that our officers will have the experience of a lifetime with memories to cherish”.

The officers will be in London from Friday to Sunday (5-7 May).
