PRESENTATION: Abuse of Position for Sexual Purpose

Hampshire & Isle of Wight Constabulary’s Anti-Corruption Unit would like to invite you to a short virtual presentation on abuse of position for sexual purpose. There is a concern within policing nationally that an imbalance of power is being abused by some officers and staff to pursue sexual and emotional relationships with vulnerable members of the public. There is a need to shine a light on this so that we can work together with partner agencies to identify where this is happening and prevent further harm being caused. Whilst thankfully this behaviour is very rare within Hampshire and the Isle of Wight we would like to take this opportunity to explain more about the topic; the signs to look out for, how to report any concerns and how to keep service users updated about the progress of their complaint.

The presentation is aimed at practitioners who work directly with vulnerable people across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.

Presentation Dates: 18 April 2023 & 19 September 2023 at 10.00am. The presentation will last 1 hour.
