PCC Vera Baird comments in light of Rotherham Review findings

23rd March 2016

Northumbria Police and Crime Commissioner, Vera Baird, said: “In light of today’s review findings which identified serious police failings in the handling of child sexual exploitation in Rotherham –  I wish to make it absolutely clear that keeping the most vulnerable members of our communities safe is of the highest importance to me. I am committed to ensuring Northumbria Police do all they can to tackle this issue head on. We will continue working hard to raise awareness, spotting the warning signs and giving people the confidence to come forward so we can seek justice for victims and put offenders before the courts.”
