The first chairman of the Jersey Police Authority has been appointed.

Advocate Jonathan White will be responsible for overseeing the States of Jersey Police and ensuring they deliver their key aims and objectives.

Mr White, who is the chairman of Jersey Finance and Durrell and also works as a solicitor in England, will work with the home affairs minister and the chief of police.

The other six members of the authority have yet to be selected.

Two States members are due to be elected by their peers in September with the other four posts advertised later.

Mr White said of the four-year post: "I am delighted to have been offered this position.

"I know how hard the police have been working to align themselves more closely with the community and the police authority is an important part of that initiative."
