Communities and businesses offered child sexual exploitation (CSE) awareness training

Cleveland Police and Barnardo’s NIGHTWATCH project are working together and are extending the opportunity for communities and local businesses to take up the offer of receiving free training on child sexual exploitation (CSE).

Detective Sergeant Daryll Tomlinson from Cleveland Police’s Child Exploitation Team supports the work of Barnardo’s saying: “It is important that everyone in the community understands how they can help protect our children by being able to ‘SPOT THE SIGNS’.

“Pam Smith and Alan Routledge from Barnardo’s are committed to raising awareness of how children can be targeted and give people the opportunity to develop their understanding and offer them advice on how they can help.

“We encourage communities across Teesside to attend the event and help the police, Local Authorities and support services fight the on-going challenges we face against child sexual exploitation.’

Everyone is welcome to attend this free session starting at 6.30pm on Wednesday 3rd February at Barnardo’s Bridgeway Centre, Allendale Road, Ormesby.
