A LAWYER who already chairs Jersey Finance and the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust has been appointed to head the new independent body that will oversee the running of the Island’s police force.
As chairman of the Jersey Police Authority, Advocate Jonathan White will be responsible for ensuring that the States of Jersey Police is an efficient and effective force.
He will be joined on the board by up to six other members who are still to be appointed, two of whom will be States Members.
Advocate White is a former managing partner and group chairman of the law firm Ogier, which during his time at the firm grew into an international fiduciary services business in nine jurisdictions and from which he retired in 2009.
From Ogier Website:
After 21 years as a Partner, of which over 15 have been involved in managing and developing the business, Jonathan White has decided to stand down as a Partner of Ogier. Whilst he remains deeply committed to Ogier, Jonathan believes that the time is right for him to step aside and to develop other interests.He will retire as a Partner with effect from 31 July 2009 but will be retained as a consultant by Ogier working on both client matters and special projects. This will be a substantial commitment and is one that pleases Jonathan given his long-term and special association with Ogier. Clive Chaplin, the new Ogier Group Chairman, said that "We are delighted to be able to continue to draw on his expertise in a meaningful way which will be to our mutual benefit.
