Parish Honorary Police

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.

19/11/2018The online driving licence service is quick and really easy to use; it works on your smartphone, tablet or computer - and you can take your photo with its camera

Only 30% of driving licences due to expire in January 2019 have so far renewed. Have you checked the expiry date on your Jersey driving licence? If not, take a look at column 11 on the reverse of the licence. You can renew your licence up to 3 months before the expiry date so anyone with a licence expiring by mid February 2019 should apply now.

Use the online service - the service works on your smartphone, tablet or computer and you can take your photo with its camera. Parishioners tell us it's quick and really easy to use - why not try it and let us know if you agree?

Or pick up an application form from your Parish Hall and submit this with a printed passport style photograph. Payment of £50 for a 10-year licence is also required and if your name has changed since your last licence was issued (for example marriage etc.) you must submit the relevant documents (in this case a marriage certificate).

Remember - you must not drive if your licence has expired. Your vehicle insurance may also be invalid if you drive on an expired licence.
