Child sexual abuse

Child sexual abuse including child sexual exploitation (CSE) remains a key priority. There has been an increased focus on safeguarding the vulnerable which has led to significant increases in the number of investigations, successful convictions, and confidence in victims coming forward. I will continue to raise awareness of this devastating crime, ensure that the police and partners are sufficiently resourced to catch and convict those who sexually abuse and exploit children, and provide support for those who have been affected.
