The CSE Team will move out of Maltby police station to Riverside, Rotherham by September.
Safeguarding Children’s Board chairman Steve Ashley has been among those appealing for a more central location. Rotherham Council’s Children’s Services Director, Joyce Thacker said, “We will have a safeguarding hub that will bring together all activities in CSE, public protection and domestic abuse. “We’re hoping to launch that in September.
Mr Ashley has also urged that the team have one designated “leader” rather than the current split in responsibilities between the council and South Yorkshire Police. “If we had that the team would feel that they had one person fighting their battles. It doesn’t have to be a police or social services expert, just someone who has the right leadership qualities.”
Ha ! So who might that be then ? Well it could be our “Leader” of Rotherham Borough Council, Roger Stone, himself of course ! Why a would we need someone who is an expert on anything other than dodging issues and hiding from reporters ?
“We have been through this process before with our council”, he says, “Things end up going back and forth between two people like a tennis ball. So you will get our 100% support on this, preferably with us running it not the police.”
Well God forbid that the police be in charge of this “hub”. We don’twant them making decisions on anything to do with law breaking, now do we ? Rotherham needs ONE leader, for ALL things, and what better person than the Commandant we already have ?
The corruption and deception in Rotherham Council is almost beyond belief, yet we continue to have this unelected, undemocratic, unscrupulous, biased Labour Party member in office, with his minions doing his bidding at every turn.
Excuse me while I weep.
