Police and Guernsey Border Agency top jobs to be merged
Thursday 15th November 2012, 5:01PM GMT.
GUERNSEY’S police force and border agency will be overseen by a single head under new radical new plans announced this afternoon.
The Home Department believe a single head of law enforcement will ensure even closer working between the two bodies, increased accountability and more efficiencies.
Both the chief of police Patrick Rice and GBA head Rob Prow can now apply for the post.
Interviews take place in December, with the post holder in place from 1 January.
‘This decision has been taken because we believe that closer alignment between the Police and the GBA will bring three things: improved front-line service delivery, greater efficiency in the use of resources and increased accountability,’ said Home minister Jonathan Le Tocq, pictured.
