PCC Response to Bullfinch Sentencing
Response from Anthony Stansfeld, Police and Crime Commissioner for Thames Valley to the Operation Bullfinch sentencing:
"This is an excellent result and I would again like to praise the courage of the victims who were brave enough to give evidence which was crucial in bringing this to court and securing a conviction.
"I hope that these sentences are a solemn warning to others who have committed this sort of offence and be assured that the police and our partners are making every effort to bring other offenders to court.
"It is unacceptable that this sort of crime can be committed in our society today and if anyone has suspicions about child sexual exploitation happening in their communities I would urge them to report it to the police. Safeguarding vulnerable people is the responsibility of each and every one of us. "
