A new night-time patrol scheme is due to be introduced in Jersey.
The initiative, which will begin late next month, will see church volunteers patrol the streets of St Helier.
The aim of the street pastors is not to provide ministry but to give practical help to people who have been out socialising in the island's capital.
As well as helping to prevent crime by trying to calm alcohol-fuelled situations from escalating, they will also alert police to incidents.
In addition, they will also help reunite people who have become separated from friends during nights out, escort revellers to taxis and provide medical assistance when needed.
The scheme has already been introduced into numerous towns and cities in England where it has been deemed a success.
