THE STATES OF JERSEY POLICE
Senator Le Marquand, Deputy Chief Barry Taylor: These two were seriously imbedded in the David Warcup camp. I believe that the history of the SOJP under Graham Power & Lenny Harper is trying to be rewritten .
I believe this goes with discrediting the Child Abuse Investigation
During October 2010 the Home Affairs Scrutiny Sub-panel met and one of the the issues that was discussed was Police Training.
Now as the JEP article from the 18th October 2010 says below:

Acting police chief Barry Taylor
POLICE officers were denied the right training for seven years to allow them to rise through the ranks to senior positions, a senior police office has said.
Acting deputy police chief Barry Taylor said that there was no managerial training or leadership preparation, which resulted in officers ‘stagnating’ in their rank.
Mr Taylor, who took on the temporary post 18 months ago, told the Education and Home Affairs Scrutiny sub-panel on Friday that when he arrived in the Island he found that ‘things had been allowed to stagnate for a while’ in the way of supporting officers through the ranks to more senior positions.

Look how the 7yrs is brought up.
So, what is basically being said is the the SOJP which was a shambles before Graham Power & Lenny Harper turned up (check the HMIC reports) didn't offer the right training to officers, hence we have got to look to the UK.
Does the evidence stack up?
Then who can forget this
Senator ILM comes in with the bullying sketch. I have fully challenged the Senator on this issue with evidenced based facts: HE RAN AWAY FROM ME WHEN CHALLENGED FACE TO FACE
Can you see how the picture is beginning to build
They know they have to employ officers from the UK and this could all stem from the Curtis Warren debacle
So damning was the privy council on the Officers who could have been promoted that there was zero chance of it happening. Now, everyone new it would be the SOJP and not the Law Office that would get the flak. We now hear of early retirements, what better way of diverting the incoming bullets than blaming it on Succession Planning.

Home Affairs Minister Ian Le Marquand
SIGNIFICANT progress has been made during the past two years in changing the culture of bullying and arrogance which affected the States police, says Home Affairs Minister Ian Le Marquand.
And the positive changes have come under the leadership of former acting police chief David Warcup and his deputy, Barry Taylor, said the Senator.
Commenting at the end of the historical child abuse inquiry, Senator Le Marquand said that there had been cultural issues in the force which were exacerbated under the leadership of police chief Graham Power and his deputy, Lenny Harper.
‘I noticed a culture of bullying in certain areas and a culture of arrogance,’ said Senator Le Marquand. ‘The message coming from senior management tended to be “We are the expert professionals and we know better than you”, and that attitude was being passed down the force.’

What people don't realize is that Graham Power has written a submission to the Home Affairs Scrutiny Panel
It contains over 10,000 words and challenges what has been put forward from Senator Ian Le Marquand and Barry Taylor
Here are the links: Graham Powers first as his is a submission & then the others as they are transcripts
And now we have this:
THREE new appointments have been announced by States Police with two officers heading to the Island from the UK.
Barry Taylor, who joined the force as Acting Deputy Chief Officer in 2009, has been confirmed in the post of Deputy Chief. Stewart Gull is to become the Superintendent Head of Crime and Bernard Gravett will be Superintendent Head of Operations.
Mr Gull has been an Acting Assistant Chief Constable and was awarded the Queen’s Police Medal in 2009 and is currently a Chief Superintendent with Suffolk Constabulary.
Mr Gravett is a Superintendent in the Metropolitan Police and was the Divisional Commander of Westminster Central with a
There is something not quite right down at the old SOJP at this present time. Sure, there has been great press about the PR aspect of policing; Police on the beat; Catching the speeders etc etc but what about the real crime? What about say land re-zonning? Fraud? can the Police act? are they allowed to act?
The Jersey police cant charge - The Centenier does that
The Jersey Police rely on the Attorney General for prosecution
Thats how the Jersey Police get politicized
Thats how Abuse Cases were dropped
Thats how Stuart Syvret was Raided for Data Protection
Thats how the JDA2 ended up in the Royal Court with Mega Fines
Thats how Terry Le Main & Sean Power get to Tango with Emma Martins across the Royal Square for Data protection issues
Its all politicized
What are the Home Affairs Scrutiny Sub- Panel going to be doing about the discrepancies? Is there time before the election?

Before I sign off My next blog is about this shocker
HAUT de la Garenne is reopening under a different name as an outdoor activity centre and hostel.
The former children’s home has been rebranded as the Jersey Accommodation and Activity Centre and will be run by Jersey Adventures and Jersey Odyssey – two local companies offering land- and sea-based activities from kayaking and coasteering to walking, rock climbing and skydiving.
It is due to receive its first guests on Tuesday 26 April and will offer bed-and-breakfast accommodation to families and groups throughout the year, with optional half-board.
I have no problem with the people from JAAC and believe the place must be used at some time but how insensitive is this, we haven't even had a committee of enquiry yet. No one from the JCLA have been informed about this.
This Government never ceases to amaze when it comes to the feelings of Abuse survivors
