In response to the chief officer of the States of Jersey Police, Mike Bowron, announcing his retirement, the Minister for Home Affairs, Deputy Kristina Moore, has made the following statement
“I am truly grateful to the chief officer for the exemplary leadership he has provided to the States of Jersey Police since his appointment in 2011.
“Mike has overseen significant improvements to the force, which have undoubtedly resulted in a greatly enhanced level of public confidence in the police. I have seen for myself the commitment and professionalism of officers under Mike’s leadership and how in touch they are with the public they serve.
“Mike has also implemented a very successful staff development programme, which has ensured that local officers will be much better equipped to undertake senior roles in the force in the years ahead.
“Mike will leave an enduring legacy, and whilst I am disappointed to be losing a chief officer of such ability, I fully understand his decision to retire. On behalf of the people of Jersey, I wish Mike all the very best for his future retirement.”
