Abuse survivors and ex-officers urged to take part in new review of South Yorkshire Police conduct
Child sexual exploitation survivors from across South Yorkshire are being urged to contribute to a new review into the conduct of South Yorkshire Police that has been launched today.
The new review by Professor John Drew, a former chief executive of the Youth Justice Board for England and Wales, is to examine whether the failures of the force uncovered in Rotherham happened elsewhere in the county.
It will also try to establish whether the force’s current practices are up to the right standard.
IPCC urged to ‘get on with’ South Yorkshire Police Rotherham child abuse probe
South Yorkshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner has urged the police watchdog to “get on with” its investigation of complaints made against officers’ handling of child sexual exploitation in Rotherham.
Dr Alan Billings said the wait for the result of the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) probe had left South Yorkshire Police in “limbo”.
The IPCC is investigating complaints against more than 60 officers.
He said the delay was affecting morale.
