  • Collaborate with other professionals to advise on safety plans and neighborhood assessments, ensuring the safety of young people within communities.
  • Conduct mapping exercises to identify links between young people at risk of exploitation and maintain a county-wide view of exploitation trends and hot spot areas.
  • Support the coordination of Joint Police Operations in response to identified child exploitation across the county.
  • Recognize and promote good practice.
