A STATES police officer has been dismissed from the force – but will not face criminal charges – after being reported for sending obscene sexual images.

The man was sacked following an internal investigation, which the JEP understands was sparked in June when a woman complained that the junior officer had sent her “dick pics”.

In response to a JEP query, the police issued a statement saying the officer had fallen “significantly short of the high standards of conduct expected”.

The statement read: “On Thursday 28 March 2024, the States of Jersey Police terminated the employment of a junior officer following allegations of misconduct.

“This decision followed a thorough investigation into the alleged misconduct by the officer whilst off-duty and occurred when they were within their initial probationary period.”

It added: “The investigation, led by SoJP Professional Standards Department, also considered potential criminal offences, however the necessary evidential threshold was not reached.

“The investigation revealed that the officer’s behaviour fell significantly short of the high standards of conduct expected.”

Deputy chief officer Scott Hall said: “The States of Jersey Police holds all its officers and staff to the highest levels of conduct, both on and off-duty.

“The trust and confidence of the public are paramount to us, and we will deal robustly with any instance where our standards are not met.

“This decision reflects our commitment to maintaining the integrity and professionalism of our police force.”
