The Independent Advisory Group (IAG) set up to oversee the work of the Historical Abuse Enquiry team at the States of Jersey Police, are inviting comments from members of the public regarding the way in which the investigation is being handled.
The IAG are not linked with the investigation.
The five members of the local group have been put in place to act as ‘critical friends’ of the enquiry team and as a conduit to the community to prevent rumour or misinformation from damaging the investigation.
It is common practice in the UK for a group such as this to be appointed.
The team meet regularly with the Senior Investigating Officer of the investigation, and were appointed in March.
Islanders who have concerns or comments about the way in which the Enquiry is being handled are invited to write in the strictest confidence to:
Independent Advisory Group
PO Box 57
Alternatively, the group can be contacted by email: IAG@gov.je
