Met Police officers will be at intu Bromley tomorrow (Friday) to raise awareness of child sexual exploitation (CSE).

As part of national CSE awareness day the team will be giving the community advice on how to spot warning signs and what to do if you suspect a child is in danger.

Police will also be based at Bromley South station and visiting local schools.

DC Zoe Hinton said: “Bromley town centre is a busy shopping area and an excellent opportunity to engage with members of the community, so by utilising the stand we hope to speak to as many people as possible to raise awareness and try to highlight the positive impact that supporting victims and targeting offenders can have within a community.

“We hope that through raising awareness, this will help us to identify as many victims as possible that need our help and support.”

Marketing manager at the shopping centre Craig Higgins said: “We are proud to get behind such a worth cause, which will give our guests practical advice on how to protect on of the most vulnerable groups in society.

“Guests can drop by the Bromley Police CSE stand on level two, adjacent to Marks & Spencer and Beaverbrooks from 9am to 6pm on Friday, to find out how they can make a difference.”
