Probation in Europe: Jersey Probation and After Care Service (JPACS)


Jersey is an autonomous British jurisdiction with links to the Crown, through its
historical connection to Normandy, but not to the government of the United Kingdom.
Therefore, there are no formal links or accountabilities for Probation Service work
with the United Kingdom Ministry of Justice or National Offender Management
Service. Jersey is the largest of the Channel Islands with an area of 45 square miles
and a population of 100,000 inhabitants. The official languages of Jersey are English
and French with the latter being used exclusively for all legislation before 1957 even
if subsequently amended. Whilst English translations are available these are not
considered to be authoritative.
