Child exploitation is a national issue and blights the lives of children across our communities. Evidence shows us that child exploitation takes place in hotels, pubs, internet cafes and places licensed to sell alcohol and that taxis are used to transport children who are then exploited. Surrey Police particularly need the support from people in these roles to be alert to the specific warning signs to help prevent this from happening in Surrey.
One of the biggest issues in tackling child exploitation, is that in isolation the warning signs aren’t always obvious or feel concerning enough to act on, meaning that it can go on beneath the radar. It is essential therefore that the community help to identify any suspicious behaviour and ensure it is reported to build the bigger picture.
