States of Jersey Police vehicle fleet (FOI)

States of Jersey Police vehicle fleet (FOI)

Produced by the Freedom of Information office
Authored by Government of Jersey on behalf of the States of Jersey Police and published on 19 June 2019.
Prepared internally, no external costs.


I would like to request a vehicle fleet list for the Jersey State Police for 2019,1990, 1987 and 1982 please.


No records are held for 1990, 1987 or 1982. The present (2019) marked States of Jersey Police fleet is as follows:

1x BMX X5

1x Mitsubishi Shogun

5x BMW F45 216d

4x Ford Transit 310

1x Connect Tourneo

3x BMW i3

2x Honda VFR 800X

The States of Jersey Police also has a number of unmarked vehicles. Unmarked vehicles are used for a number of reasons:

i) to allow officers to prevent and detect crime where the use of a marked car would be less effective

ii) to allow plain clothed officers to work discretely

iii) to protect the privacy of off-duty officers who may still need access to a vehicle in the event of an urgent re-call.

Information in relation to the unmarked vehicles is therefore exempt from disclosure under Article 38 (Endangering the safety or health of individuals) and Article 42 (Law Enforcement) of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011.

Articles applied

Article 38 Endangering the safety or health of individuals

Information is qualified exempt information if its disclosure would, or would be likely to –

(a) endanger the safety of an individual; or

(b) endanger the physical or mental health of an individual

Article 42 Law enforcement

Information is qualified exempt information if its disclosure would, or would be likely to, prejudice –

(a) the prevention, detection or investigation of crime, whether in Jersey or elsewhere;


The public disclosure of the unmarked fleet raises concerns about the States of Jersey Police’s ability to prevent, detect or investigate crime, and to ensure officer safety. The States of Jersey Police, unlike other police forces serving large geographical areas, must consider the impact of such disclosure when serving a small island community, and where officers themselves live in this same community. The following factors have been taken into account;

i) the identities of these vehicles and officers could quickly become common knowledge, thereby compromising the effectiveness of these vehicles and the safety of these officers;

ii) discreet work by plain clothed officers and privacy of persons of interest would likely to be compromised;

iii) the safety of officers who, while off-duty and at their home address, but still in need of a vehicle for urgent re-call, would likely to be compromised.
