In Jersey when a states Of Jersey PC flipped his patrol vehicle, what was the cause? What was the outcome? What was the name of this PC? was he dismissed from the SOJP? In court was he tried under Common Law or Statue Law? Is there an ID number (or other means of identification) for this case?
Being a tax payer and paying for the SOJP vehicles can I personally inspect them eg approach a stationary patrol vehicle and ask them the test their lights on the vehicle? What would the outcome of this be if I find a light doesn't work during the night?
Is there a limitation of food I can take into someone who is being held in custody at PHQ
eg I understand a bag of chips is reasonable can I take a birthday cake in?
If stopped by a PC can I honourable notice them, eg I notice you that if I remain hear against my will for more than five minutes I will be charging you and your company at a rate of ten pounds per five minutes or part therefore, if I am not found guilty under common law?
Is the SOJP, honorary police force (each parish), magistrates court, royal court etc. a company?
If ordered by a PC can I charge them? after all an order is chargeable?
