Derbyshire Police have released a statement following the serious case review into the deaths of the six Philpott children, in May 2012.
Detective Superintendent, Andy Stokes, head of public protection, said:
“The death of any child is extremely tragic but this case was particularly distressing for the families involved, the community and the officers and staff who formed the investigation team...
... The serious case review recommends that front line officers are reminded of the need to document the details of all children at an address when they attend domestic violence incidents and to consider the welfare of the children...
... This recommendation has been carried out as part of a wider programme to raise awareness of safeguarding issues across the force and all officers will be regularly reminded of the lessons highlighted in this and other serious case reviews.”
