Child Sexual Exploitation, or CSE, is the sexual abuse of a child or young person aged under 18 by an adult who involves them in inappropriate sexual activities either with themselves or another person. The activity often takes place in exchange for money, alcohol, drugs, food, accommodation or presents such as clothing or mobile phones, and victims can be targeted in person or online.
Surrey Police is committed to tackling this awful crime, and the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner has provided additional funding to support this drive. Recent funding has included:
£31,440 to provide a dedicated Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE) Analyst. The post holder will be responsible for advising and assisting in all aspects of investigation by providing strategic and tactical analysis of multi-agency CSE intelligence to senior officers, in order to identify offenders, series and trends, and to suggest problem solving prevention, disruption and intelligence gathering opportunities.
£31,440 to provide a dedicated Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE) Coordinator. The post holder will establish and maintain a network of contact with local partner agencies to facilitate intelligence sharing, which in turn will help identify CSE victims, perpetrators and hot spots of offending. They will also promote good customer service and police confidence by acting as the primary point of contact and in some cases single point of contact in relation to children at risk of Child Sexual Exploitation.
