Harbours and Airport security contracts renewed

Monday 26 January 2015

Ports of Jersey has signed a new three-year contract to carry out aviation and maritime security with existing local provider G4S Jersey.

The £2.8 million annual contract will see G4S retain overall responsibility for all passenger and baggage security across the Island’s entry ports. The company was one of seven suppliers asked to tender for the contract out of the 27 local and UK companies who initially applied.

In addition security for the public areas around St Helier Harbour will continue to be carried out by local provider, Jersey Security Bureau which has been awarded a new three-year contract, following a competitive tender process. They will undertake security in and around the three marinas, emergency responses to incidents and CCTV monitoring.  

Group Operations Director for Ports of Jersey, Stephen Driscoll said: “The safety of our passengers, staff, equipment and facilities are of the upmost importance to the organisation, which is why it is essential we appointed a professional company with the appropriate skills to look after our interests. We are pleased with the appointment of G4S Jersey and JBS following a rigorous tender process and we look forward to working closely with them in the future.”

Funding for both contracts, which came into effect on 1 January and are due to expire on 31 December 2017, is allocated from the Ports of Jersey Trading Funds and not from the public purse.
