Jersey police officer forced to resign over sexual misconduct

Jersey Police Station

A Jersey Police officer was forced to resign earlier this year after he was accused of sexual misconduct by two of his colleagues, ITV News has learned.

The revelation comes just one month after another officer was arrested for alleged rape.

He remains suspended from duty and under investigation.

A third officer also resigned whilst under investigation for communication offences earlier this year, namely breaching data protection.

The information was obtained through a Freedom of Information request.

However, Jersey’s Chief Officer Robin Smith insists there is not a ‘culture problem’ within the force but all staff had been reminded of the standards expected of them.

An officer was accused of sexual misconduct in 2020, but this claim was found to be unsubstantiated.
