What intelligence should be reported to the Police?

As we have seen from all the information above, child exploitation can come in many different forms, so it can be difficult to understand what information/intelligence needs to be reported to the Police.

Please click here to access a useful briefing produced by the Police detailing what types of information should be reported to them via the Partnership Intelligence Portal (PIP). For more information about the PIP and what it is used for please click here.
