Report of child rape are on the increase in Essex

First published in News

Reports of child rapes have increased in Essex.

Essex Police is working with partners on the issue and confirmed “focused work” is currently taking place.

The number of reports of serious sexual offences have increased dramatically in the past year.

The increase has been put down to more historic allegations being reported and a greater confidence in the way the force is handling reports rather than an increase in the number of attacks.

There has also been an increase in the number of sex assaults on young teenage girls by older teenage boys.

The reasons for this are being investigated.

I think it is more than likely correctly reported. I take the word 'partners' to mean the likes of Social Workers, Health Advisors, and the whole host of other affiliated organisations that get involved one way or another with 'youth welfare and safety'.

I would call it "sexualisation".

Both boys and girls are sexually aware at a progressively younger age, and peer pressure escalates this.

It is also established that in their teens, girls are more mature than boys of the same age so tend to hang around with boys two or three years older - and often pretend to be the same age as the boys.
