Investigators looking at how South Yorkshire Police treated complaints of child sexual exploitation in Rotherham are working to identify scores of officers.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) said it had received 47 referrals from the force, involving more than 100 allegations.

So far more than 60 officers have been identified.

The complaints include allegations of neglect of duty and of corruption.

  1. From today’s Star:
    Dr Alan Billings says:
    “He said ‘cultural change’ needs to happen across the force to tackle abuse.”
    “Cultural change in any organisation is the most difficult thing you can effect.”
    There is no evidence of any genuine change of culture within SYP or the local authorities.
    Abuses of all kinds in this region continues, against all vulnerable sections of our community.
    There is neither the will nor ability to change, as, to this day, SYP remain intransigent with following up on reports of abuse, whilst the local authority only concerns itself with its reputation.
    Only a top-down clear-out and outside intervention has any hope for the victims.
