Rochdale Police now giving themselves awards for what they didn't do !!!!
Police intelligence officer gets international accolade for work in investigation of child grooming in Rochdale
Danielle Williams, an intelligence officer who played a crucial part in investigating child sexual exploitation, has received a top award
The award comes after the force revealed this week that no officers will be disciplined following a probe into how GMP failed victims of child sexual exploitation in the town.
But since those failings the work to tackle CSE has improved dramatically.
Danielle Williams, crime intelligence analyst at Rochdale police station, received a commendation at the Association of Crime and Intelligence Analysts Conference in Manchester for outstanding achievements and innovative development for her work to identify CSE.
She won the national award for her work in problem profiling child sexual exploitation in Rochdale. This accolade has led to her winning the IALEIA Award for Excellence and she will be honoured at a presentation on May 7 in Phoenix, Arizona.
Danielle said: “I was delighted to have won, especially because of the outstanding calibre of nominations. To receive the international award too was such a shock but it was amazing news and a great achievement.
“I am astounded that the work that I have carried out in Rochdale has now been recognised on a global level.”
Danielle helped to develop a Rochdale Division ‘problem profile’. It is being used as a template for the force and aims to improve learning and consistency even further.
The problem profile for Rochdale was the first of its kind, containing a 108-page report with advice on assessing victims and vulnerable people and disruption and prevention tactics. A number of recommendations were adopted as a result.
Danielle added: “These awards are a great recognition of some of the ground-breaking work that has been carried out by GMP into identifying victims and perpetrators.
“There have been significant changes and learning made since the analysis was carried out and I am immensely proud of everything we have achieved.
“Mistakes were made in the past but this work is proof of how much we have evolved and we will always strive to look for new opportunities to improve even further.
“Children and young people are at the heart of everything that we do because every child deserves a childhood - and safeguarding children is everybody’s business.”
NWN: They ignored for years the issue of child sex grooming because the culprits were Pakistani . They and the Social workers who are also brainwashed marxists turned a blind eye! And now they have the cheek to award themselves because they 'ballsed up' ?
