Two new Centeniers
Retired police officer and former deputorial candidate elected

Arthur Morley (Chef de Police)

In November 2007, Mr John Trafford was elected as Centenier, filling the vacancy left by Geoffrey Cornwall’s decision to retire from Honorary Police service.
John is a retired police officer, with over 40 years service, during which time he has been an Inspector with the Kent Constabulary, and a police driving instructor. Prior to retirement he was Alderney’s resident senior police officer.
Although retired, John remains very active. He is the Islands only qualified examiner for the Institute of Advanced Motorists, Chairman of the Jersey Advanced Drivers Association and member of the Road Safety Panel.
Elected in December 2007, Mr Stephen Pallett was finally sworn in as Centenier by the Royal Court in February 2008. His delayed swearing-in was the result of concerns expressed by by Solicitor General, Stephanie Nicolle who had sought a Royal Court judgement regarding his eligibilty due to an offence committed as a juvenile - over 30 years ago.
After a 100 minute hearing in which Connetable Mike Jackson addressed the Court with a statement of support, it was ruled that Mr Pallett could be sworn in.
Steve is a former chairman of the JDA, and an un-successful candidate in both Connétable and Deputy elections in 2004. He joined the Honorary Police as a Constable’s Officer in 2005 after taking up the challenge “to serve the Parish in an alternative role should he not be elected to politcal office” offered by a member of the audience during the deputorial hustings.
Steve takes over from Michel Bougeard who had decided not to stand for re-election as Centenier. However, he is maintaining his unbroken record of service to the Parish by continuing as a Constable’s Officer.
Connétable Mike Jackson said: “The Parish is very grateful to Mr Bougeard for his service in this often difficult role. We are however delighted that he has chosen to offer his considerable experience in an alternative capacity”.
