*** Child Sexual Exploitaion Awareness Day 2018 ***

Today is Child Sexual Exploitation Awareness Day 2018, just weeks before the first anniversary of the introduction of a new offence – sexual communications with a child. Cleveland Police and the force’s Police and Crime Commissioner have reaffirmed their commitment to tackling CSE and safeguarding children and young people.

The offence was introduced to fill a gap in existing legislation aimed at protecting youngsters. So far 11 males aged between 18-39-years-old have been arrested under the new offence.

Read our press release here for further information on CSE: www.cleveland.police.uk/news/newsall/release22858.aspx

Below are some useful links on how parents and carers can keep children safe online:

Could somebody send an invitation to #TelfordCouncil, #RotherhamCouncil and #RochdaleCouncil?

All these people going around who catch people child grooming are doing more of a job at catching them than police

Still too much focus from the police of the online so called ‘hate speech’ than sexual communication of a child?! How many people have been arrested for hate speech vs online child abuse?

CSE when I was at school meant Certificate of Secondary Education

Child Exploitation awareness day? Should try telling the media that! #TelfordAbusescandal: 13/03 www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-shropshire-43391605 14/03 www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-shropshire-43385515 16/03 www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-shropshire-43419136 I doubt that 5% of the country are even aware of this

Lets not take the focus away from protecting the kids who are abused within their family and friends and everyday activities setting PLEASE!

This is how the police waste resources...! They don’t need anymore funding, just better management and ‘real’ policing www.facebook.com/TheImamofPeace/posts/2108598069385870

How many convictions is the question.

Not only men ! Terrible there has to be such a law . But all good the police arresting these kinds . The judged are bent and let them off
