As a result of issues that have been raised in the reports by Professor Jay and Louise Casey, in parliamentary evidence sessions, and in the media, and raised with the Commissioner by SYP, partner agencies, victims, survivors and their families, serving and retired police officers, and concerned MPs, councillors and members of the public, the themed areas of the Drew Review are:-
Is the current organisational culture across the four districts a help or hindrance to future openness and transparency?
- Effective appropriate leadership
Are SYP leaders effectively driving the fight against child sexual exploitation?
Has a target-focused recording of crime mentality prevented SYP from effectively tackling child sexual exploitation sooner?
- Victim focus
Is the victim at the forefront of all policing decisions within SYP?
Is the scale of the problem confined to Rotherham, or county-wide?
- Partnership working
Do current partnership relationships allow for open and honest discussions to take place, with free exchange of information?
- Prosecutions and case-building
Has SYP encouraged case-building against perpetrators of child sexual exploitation, acknowledging the intricacies of information gathering?
- Resource management
Does current SYP technology allow for the effective recording and sharing of information and data regarding child sexual exploitation?
The review will establish whether the failings and subsequent learning from these identified by South Yorkshire Police has been exclusive to Rotherham, or is inherent across the force area.
