Child Sexual Exploitation
In Hackney, there are three broad CSE profiles:
CSE risk resulting from peer-on-peer abuse (sexual offences/exploitation against one or more victims and usually perpetrated in a group setting)
CSE risk from an adult perpetrator (typically a young person believing themselves to be in a ‘relationship’ with an adult after being introduced to them by a normally vulnerable friend, or through online contact)
Exploitation via social media (inciting or encouraging a victim to take and send explicit images of his/herself)
There is no defined profile within the City of London. There continues to be a low number of cases relating to CSE. Over the last 2 years, the City partnership has intervened on cases relating to rape, sexual activity, possession of indecent images and grooming by offenders via the internet / social media.
