Pledge to Continue Tackling Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE) (Dec 16 2015)

The West Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner, Mark Burns-Williamson, has shown his commitment to tackling Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE) and sexual abuse by pledging to continue to do everything possible to crack down and tackle such abhorrent crimes.

Throughout the Christmas and New Year period West Yorkshire Police are focusing attention on safeguarding and vulnerability issues within our communities.

To demonstrate his support the Police and Crime Commissioner brought partners from across West Yorkshire together to help spread the message about the devastating impact of CSE and sexual abuse on lives of vulnerable victims.

Mark Burns-Williamson, said:

"One of the best ways to deal with this crime is to work in partnership with other agencies to make a real difference together.

"No one can expect or should be expected to deal with all these things on their own. With everyone working together to highlight these  issues and use their collective strengths we can send out a loud and clear message to those committing these awful crimes that it will not be tolerated or accepted.

"The main purpose of us coming together in this way was to remind victims of this crime that they can have the confidence that when they approach an organisation like the police they will be listened to and supported appropriately."
