Protecting children and vulnerable adults from harm is a key priority for the Force and partners and it is vital for the effective management of dangerous and sexual offenders and the protection of the public that these areas are prioritised.
In implementing the Force Safeguarding Strategy, the Force will ensure at a District level there is a consistent approach to child safeguarding (including child sexual abuse, physical abuse, neglect and child sexual exploitation), adult safeguarding (including domestic abuse and abuse of vulnerable adults), public protection and abusive images. Our multi-agency approach to safeguarding (primarily through Local Safeguarding Boards), means we will increase our ability to prevent offences, robustly manage dangerous offenders and provide high level support to victims. We will continue to provide a highly-skilled and victim-focused approach to the investigation and detection of rape and other serious sexual offences.
