National Crime Agency lists police failings over Rotherham sex abuse | UK news | The Guardian.
Notice: The current Guardian article does not talk about the abusers only the police. What are they doing in the Pakistani community to stop the crimes before they happen?
“The report, published on Thursday, found that the force did not use alternative ways to gather evidence, missed ways to protect victims, and failed to work well with the local authority to tackle offenders.
The NCA launched its inquiry in December 2014 following the release of Professor Alexis Jay’s damning report in August, which triggered a national outcry after revealing that children as young as 11 had been raped and abducted by multiple perpetrators between 1997 and 2013.”
“The majority of the perpetrators were described by victims as being Asian. The inquiry found that several staff described their nervousness talking about the race of the men “for fear of being thought racist”. Others remembered clear direction from their managers not to do so.
Councillors did not engage directly with the Pakistani community to discuss how best they could jointly address the issue, and some seemed to think it was a “one-off” problem.”
