National CE Awareness Day

Think, spot and speak out against abuse

About National CE Awareness Day

18 March is the annual day promoting awareness of the exploitation which criminals target at children and young people. The more we all know about the signs of exploitation, the sooner we can help young people who are the victims of manipulation by criminal adults. Watch our School Police Officers’ video blog to learn for yourself, and check out other resources on this page from NWG Network.

Working to prevent Child Exploitation

Wales Police Schools Programme aims to protect children through providing the School Police Officer as a trusted member of the school community. SPOs work through the year to protect young people from criminal and sexual exploitation and support teachers and professionals who have concerns.
