New Cumbria police campaign focuses on child sexual exploitation

CUMBRIA police, along with partner agencies, have today launched a campaign around child sexual exploitation.

For the next three days key information will be circulated on the Cumbria police website and social media accounts, giving advice on how to prevent CSE and how to spot when it may be happening.

Today is focused on how everyone in Cumbria has a role to play in spotting and reporting CSE, regardless of their profession or knowledge of children.

The campaign follows the police and crime commissioner’s conference which launched his further commitment to tackling domestic abuse and sexual violence.

A webchat will be taking place tomorrow, which will allow anyone to ask any questions they may have around CSE. A number of different agencies will be taking part in the webchat, and will be offering advice and signposting to the best places to get support.

The webchat will take place at www.cumbria.police.uk/csechat between 6.30pm to 8pm.

DCI Nick Coughlan, from the public protection unit for Cumbria Constabulary, said: “We work very hard to bring CSE offenders to justice, as Operation Chiefton showed last week. However, it is crucial that we uncover any exploitation as quickly as possible and protect children in Cumbria. CSE is a crime that can affect any child, anytime, anywhere. That is why I am urging everyone in Cumbria to be vigilant against exploitation and report any suspicions to the police. This includes people who work in people-orientated professions, such as taxi drivers and hairdressers, who may seesigns that are hidden from close friends and family.

“CSE can take many forms – whether it is through a seemingly ‘consensual’ relationship with an older boyfriend, or a young person having sex in return for attention, gifts, alcohol or cigarettes.

“Child exploitation is thankfully rare but, if you have any concerns, please call Cumbria police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. Protecting children is everyone’s responsibility.”
