Parish Honorary Police

Find out more at yourparishneedsyou.je 

The Honorary Police provide an essential and valuable service to the Parish and community in which we live.

Each Parish has its own Honorary Police made up of volunteers from all walks of life. Many work full time and also serve in the Honorary Police with the encouragement and support of their employer.

Honorary Police officers are elected by parishioners as Centeniers, Vingteniers or Constable's Officers.

Supporting your Parish Honorary Police benefits –

  • you - broaden your skills, discover new interests and learn "on the job" as you assist people in their hour of need.
  • your business - problem solving, decision making, team building, leadership and responsibility skills and training are all transferable to the workplace.
  • your community – help to maintain law and order in your Parish and community.

06/05/2020Lockdown restrictions may have been relaxed but dog owners are reminded they still have a duty to pick up their dog's mess.

With more people likely to be out for a longer period each day the Connetables are asking dog owners to consider all other beach users.

Owners should ensure they keep their dog under control at all times and pick up their dog's mess. 

Chairman of the Comité des Connétables, Deidre Mezbourian, said –

The Connétables wish to remind dog owners of the law and that they must pick up their dog's mess and dispose of it in a bin.

Connetables are receiving compaints about the condition of beaches and also parks, sand dunes and footpaths. The requirement to clean up after your dog applies to all public areas including roads and pavements.

It is an offence to dispose of plastic bags containing dog faeces other than in a waste receptacle and there are lots of bins around the island. If you can't find a bin then take the litter home with you – don't discard the bag in the hedge or trees.  

A fine of up to £1,000 can be imposed on those who do not clean up after their dog.
