Prison Governor announces resignation

11 August 2020

​The Government of Jersey has today confirmed that the Prison Governor, Nick Cameron, has resigned from his post for personal reasons following a period of absence.

A Government spokesperson said: “Nick has been the Prison Governor of HMP La Moye since August 2018.  He has introduced many initiatives that focused on improving the welfare and support to prisoners and their families, and at the same time refocused the work of the prison on rehabilitation and reducing reoffending. Nick has now taken the personal decision to leave his post and return to the UK by the end of the year.”

The Minister for Home Affairs, with responsibility for the Prison Service said: “I would like to thank Nick for his service to the prison and for his commitment to the prisoners at HMP La Moye. He has placed the welfare of prisoners at the heart of the operation of the prison, ensuring that individuals can learn, work and rehabilitate more successfully before re-entering our community. He has also championed the well-being of his staff. I wish him and his family well on their return to the UK.”

Nick Cameron commented: “I am proud of the work and achievements of the past two years and very much hope that the changes that I have made continue. The decision I have made is a difficult one and not one that is taken lightly, however I feel that this is the right decision for my family and me at this time.  I would like to thank everyone who works with the Prison Service, including our partners in the Police, Customs, the Courts and Probation Service.  Additionally, I wish all the many dedicated staff at La Moye well.

“While I appreciate the concern some people have shown in recent weeks, I would ask that my privacy, and that of my family, is respected. I will not be commenting further on my decision and I ask that everyone respects my decision.”

No further statements or questions will be taken on this by the Minister, Government or Mr Cameron and his family.
