A campaign was launched today (Tuesday) to raise awareness of child sexual exploitation.

Cambridgeshire police is working with Cambridge and Peterborough Local Safe Guarding Children’s Board and the NSPCC to educate people to spot the signs of sexual exploitation.

Detective superintendent Gary Ridgway, from the public protection department, said: “We need to educate and make young people aware of this type of exploitation so that we can help them make the right decisions about relationships.

“If we talk openly about child sexual exploitation in schools, at home, with friends and with those who care for young people, we can break the stigma associated with this type of abuse.”
