Suffolk – National child protection inspection

Published on: 22 December 2022

Publication types: Child protection

Police Forces: Suffolk

This report is a summary of the findings of our inspection of police child protection services in Suffolk, which took place in July 2022.

We examined how effective the police’s decisions were at each stage of their interactions with or for children. This was from initial contact through to the investigation of offences against them. We also scrutinised how the force treated children in custody. And we assessed how the force is structured, led and governed, in relation to its child protection services.

This report sets out our findings.
