Operation Makesafe

Today, 18th March is child sexual exploitation awareness day.

call 101: quote operation Makesafe

Businesses across the Borough are being asked to do their part to identify and stamp out Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE).

The Police and the Council are sending letters to hotels, guesthouses and taxi companies in Redbridge asking them to sign a pledge and commit to tackling the issue, the work is part of Operation Makesafe.

CSE is a type of sexual abuse where perpetrators target vulnerable young people and use their power over them. A common feature of CSE is that the child or young person does not recognise the coercive nature of the relationship and do not see themselves as a victim of sexual exploitation. As a result they are unlikely to report the abuse, meaning the issue remains seriously under reported.
