"Re: Curtis Warren Enquiry
I am writing to ask if you can please ask some questions in the States, as I feel there still needs to be some 'answers' and that the Attorney General, The Home Affairs Minister, Chief Officer Bowron and Deputy Chief Officer Taylor have to-date not been truthful.
Firstly in the Secret Disciplinary Hearing, Deputy Chief Officer was asked 'Who is the complainant in this matter" DCO Barry Taylor didn't even think about the answer, he replied The Attorney General'. The Home Affairs Minister claimed on the 29th January 2013 that Deputy Chief Taylor was confused with the question.
The Home Affairs Minister claimed in the States that he has a 'Duty of Care' towards Police Officers. Why then has he not responded to a letter written to him by one of the Officers who has had his pay reduced due to illness as a result of the Disciplinary?
During the Disciplinary Hearing Chief Officer Bowron's lawyer Adv. (name redacted) lied in a deliberate attempt to tarnish the Officer's characters !!!! Adv. (name redacted) must have been instructed to do this - it is not usual for a Lawyer to act in this unprofessional manner!
What Duty of Care from Chief Officer Bowron, Deputy Chief Taylor and The Home Affairs Minister has been shown to the three Police Officers and their families?
Nothing had changed from the Curtis Warren investigation, arrest and conviction so why did Chief Officer Bowron commence an internal investigation? (redaction)
It also appears that Chief Officer Bowron and Deputy Chief Officer Taylor have been breaking all the rules. For example one Officer (name redacted) was 'dismissed' by Deputy Chief Officer Taylor for taking time off for sickness and was hospitalized. He appealed, and Chief Officer Bowron said Deputy Chief Officer Taylor's decision stands. This is in breach of the Police Force Jersey Law. He has been unable to appeal to the Home Affairs Minister as he states he must liaise with the Chief Officer, the Chief Officers advises him to liaise with the Home Affairs Minister !
Chief Officer Bowron has had the crime figures manipulated to make himself look good, I understand that (name redacted) could not work with him so has moved to (another States Department).
Finally, Chief Officer Bowron and Deputy Chief Officer Taylor are the worst, most spiteful bullies the States of Jersey Police has ever seen, and both should now do the decent thing and RESIGN.
I am not able to give you my name, as I do not want to be bullied and picked on like the Warren Officers, it's not a good place to work just now.
Can you please bring a VOTE OF NO CONFIDENCE to the States against The Home Affairs Minister."(END)
