Met Police commander pays tribute to abuse victims

Once again I want to pay tribute to those who have spoken out and bravely shared their experiences of sexual assault.

As a result of their collective efforts we have a great opportunity to learn from the past, develop our understanding of sexual exploitation and improve our safeguarding procedures.

Our response should send a clear warning to anyone today now in a position of power and influence who abuse their status to sexually exploit children and young people - victims will be listened to and robust action taken."

– Commander Peter Spindler, Head of Specialist Crime Investigations
