Jersey Customs and Immigration Service Annual Report 2016

Tuesday 11 July 15:11


I am very pleased to commend the Jersey Customs and Immigration Annual Report for 2016, a Service that has a wide range of diverse responsibilities across the areas of law enforcement, revenue and goods control and immigration and nationality.

As Assistant Minister for Home Affairs I have had responsibility for Customs and Immigration since October 2014 and I continue to be impressed with the way staff balance the requirements to comply with legislation whilst providing an efficient and effective service to the public of our Island.

I believe that the activities and results described in this Annual Report again demonstrate how Officers work hard to protect our Island from the threats posed by illegal immigration, the smuggling of prohibited goods such as controlled drugs and the fraudulent evasion of duties, however it must also be remembered that the demands on the Service continue to increase.

As I mentioned in my speech to the States Assembly during the debate on the Draft Medium Term Financial Plan Addition for 2017 – 2019, whilst these are financially challenging times for all areas of the public service I consider it vital that Customs and Immigration remain properly resourced with the appropriate level of funding to continue to keep us, and all Islanders, safe and secure.

Connétable Deidre Mezbourian

Assistant Minister for Home Affairs
