Today (Saturday, March 18) the national charity NWG Network is asking everyone to unite against Child Sexual Exploitation.
Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE) is a form of sexual abuse that involves the manipulation and/or coercion of young people under the age of 18 into sexual activity.
Our officers are working with partner agencies to spread key messages around CSE by attending multi-agency events across the county as well as promoting the day via social media.
C/Insp Malcolm Bibbings from our public protection unit said: “The day aims to highlight the issues surrounding CSE, encouraging everyone to think, spot and speak out against abuse.
“We are currently working with Derby City and Derbyshire County Council to roll out a learning package in schools relating to Kayleigh’s Love Story.
“This is a film that was produced about a 15 year-old girl that was groomed online and subsequently raped and murdered in 2015.
“The learning package is being delivered to almost every school child aged 11-16 in the county and highlights key CSE messages.”
