A new prison Governor for the States of Jersey Prisoner Service has been appointed.

Nick Cameron will take over from Bill Millar in August.

Mr Cameron has 24 years' experience governing prisons and leading other offender management services in Scotland, England, New Zealand and Australia.

His most recent role was deputy director of Justice and Immigration at Serco Group.

I look forward to working with colleagues across criminal justice and other government services, building on the great achievements Bill has led.

The One Jersey strategy, also creates the opportunity to work closely across services to deliver better outcomes for offenders and enhance community safety.

My wife and I are also looking forward to living in Jersey, and being part of the Island community.

– Nick Cameron

Mr Millar will retire as governor of La Moye prison, on 31 August, after more than 40 years in the prison service, working for ten years in Jersey and 30 years in the Scottish Prison Service.

What I’ve enjoyed most about the role is having the autonomy to bring about significant change in the prison management structure and the prison regime.

As retirement approaches, I am looking forward to spending more quality time with my wife and family and having much more control over my time.

– Bill Millar
