Poor performance in lots of ways!
The link to the select committee:
Today’s House of Commons Select Committee, Tuesday 16 October 2012 saw the Chief Constable of South Yorkshire Police David Crompton and DCI Philip Etheridge give evidence on the issue of child grooming here in Rotherham.
The committee started its proceedings at 14.47 with the section regarding grooming starting about 15.20/21; it makes for some very disturbing viewing especially when the committee question DCI Philip Etheridge on the number of prosecutions, a very poor performance by both officers.
The Chair Keith Vaz asks some very pertinent questions relating to an incident on Fitzwilliam Road Rotherham and raises the activity of three male members from one Pakistani family from Rotherham.
It appears that the three individuals are still at large, let’s hope they are not driving a Private Hire Vehicle or a Hackney Taxi here in Rotherham or anywhere else for that matter.
What is apparent has been the lack of police resources to address these crimes let’s see what happens going forward that is unless our old friend community cohesion gets in the way and Cllr Hoddinott stops individuals from speaking out!
Has Roger Stone had his invite to go and have a word with the committee?
