I was a child when I was groomed and sexual abused/exploited and raped. I would regularly go missing and when I had the courage to report what had happened a male officer from GMP had said what I was describing to him sounded like I wanted it despite me saying in my statement I cried during the sex and told the male I didn’t want to have sex and me being a child at the time. I then reported this same male abusing me to Nottinghamshire Constabulary where a female officer dealt with me she was a bit rude when taking evidence and not once during any of my interactions with the police was there an appropriate adult with me considering I was under 18 and extremely vulnerable allowing these police officers to do and say what they want. I was never updated and when I did contact an officer regarding my case the FEMALE POLICE OFFICER claimed she had better things to do than deal with a stupid little girl like me and other horrible stuff. These officers were completely incompetent and I’d really hate to say it but probably allowed this man to continue abusing and exploiting other children.
I understand that misogyny is an issue within the police but it doesn’t always come from male officers it sometimes comes from women too.
