Leicester pledges support for CEASE campaign

Our University has pledged its support for the CEASE campaign - the Commitment to Eradicate Abuse and Sexual Exploitation of children in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland - launched by Leicestershire Police.

CEASE is aimed at:

  • Raising greater public awareness of CSE
  • Raising public awareness of the signs that CSE may be happening
  • Increasing the reporting of the offence; and
  • Increasing the prosecutions of offenders.

In a video, which can be watched below, Professor Paul Boyle, President and Vice-Chancellor of our University joined sports stars, actresses, faith leaders and businesses leaders in pledging their support for the cause while highlighting research in the Departments of Law and Criminology into child protection.
