St Helena Police are currently conducting a Trust and Confidence survey until Tuesday, 31 March 2020. The purpose of this survey is to gather the views of the community to develop and improve the Police Service. The survey can be found here. The Police Directorate is also looking for members of the community who may be interested in being part of a community focus group. This focus group will be used to gather views on what St Helena residents expect of the Police Service. The registration form can be found here. The outcome of survey results will be provided in due course.
St Helena Island is a great place to live or visit. Like any society, there is crime, however we are proud to say that serious crime is a rarity, we have a community policing style and police by consent.
Our Constabulary is a diverse force, made up of UK Tactical Coordinated Officers and Local Officers including South African nationals.
Any crime committed on St Helena impacts our community. We try to prevent crimes before they occur and work hard to detect the crime and support victims. We also manage and support offenders after the judicial process.
Working with integrity and in line with our values, the Police Directorate provides a community focused approach to the safety and security of St Helena, and those who live on, work on, and visit the Island.
Public Service is at the core of all we do. Protecting and serving our community and delivering a safe and secure environment for all.
“I am proud of all our staff, it takes special people to police in the community they live and work in. As a Directorate we strive to work in partnership with our community and provide a high quality police service. It is essential that we are visible and accessible and for our community to have trust and confidence in their Police Service.”Acting Chief Inspector, Jonathan Thomas
