Commissioner urges victims of historic child abuse to come forward.

PCC Paddy Tipping said today that he hopes that the recent court appearance of a man charged with historic child sex offences will encourage more victims to come forward and report the crimes against them.

Paddy Tipping said: “When a case gets to court we often see other victims gaining the confidence to come forward, and this is a good thing.  The Force is keen to hear from anyone who was abused whilst in Nottinghamshire’s care facilities, however long ago the incident took place, and there are many support groups who can help guide people through the whole process if they are nervous or worried.

“But it’s really important that those affected do report what happened to them.  I know that the police will take every report seriously and treat people with sensitivity. Victims deserve to have their voice heard and I assure them that we will listen.”
