Alderney officer placed on gardening leave

Posted Mon 26th April 2010 at 21:30

Alderney's top officer has been suspended by Guernsey Police.

Sergeant James Priest has been placed on gardening leave after a complaint was made by a member of the public.

Detective chief inspector Nigel Taylor, of Guernsey Police, said: "I can confirm that a police sergeant has been suspended from duty pending further internal disciplinary action. Clearly it would be inappropriate to comment further at this time."

An investigation into the complaint against Sgt Priest has been conducted by the Police Professional Standards Department. A report is expected in mid-May, by which time a behind-closed-doors hearing will take place.

Speaking at his Alderney home this afternoon, Sgt Priest said: "I cannot comment on the issue being investigated. However, I can say that since I arrived in the island I have - and will always - support the best interests of Alderney."

Sgt Priest was appointed Alderney's chief of police 15 months ago. During his tenure recorded crime in the island has reduced, while arrests have increased. He has also introduced neighbourhood policing to the island.
