The Independent Police Complaints Commissionâ€™s investigation into South Yorkshire Policeâ€™s handling of reported child sexual exploitation (CSE) has expanded.
In November 2014 we announced an investigation into 10 police officers involved in incidents highlighted in Professor Alexis Jayâ€™s report into CSE in Rotherham.
Since that announcement we have received 30 complaints relating to South Yorkshire Policeâ€™s handling of CSE in Rotherham.
The complaints contain more than 100 allegations against 42 named police officers, both retired and serving, as well as a number of allegations against officers whose identities are currently unknown.
Work to establish the identity of the unknown officers and to identify any links between the different complaints and incidents is ongoing.
The allegations range from neglect of duty by failing to adequately investigate on the basis of intelligence or to deal with incidents appropriately, inappropriate comments and suggestions of corrupt relationships between police officers and offenders.
