^Day after day the media reveal the latest cases of child abuse, but do we believe these could happen in our street, our church, our home?
^^Policing Innocence is a ground-breaking book for any adult who cares for a child - family, professionals, church leaders and workers, friends, neighbours. Protecting children is a battle, and Policing Innocence is one of the most powerful weapons available to fight that battle. It empowers you by revealing the truth about the pervasive and invisible dangers children face in their everyday lives. Policing Innocence is the best armour you have to protect them; it is never offensive, always appropriate and totally practical.
^^Drawing on her experience as a police officer in the Paedophile Unit, mother of two, and church member, Rebecca Andrews navigates us through a challenging yet vital issue with an entertaining style full of humour and honesty. This book is one of the most important you can read; it is unique in addressing such essential issues, and its easy-to-read style ensures that you will enjoy it.
^^Policing Innocence has been acclaimed on nationwide BBC radio, and addresses crucial subjects like the Justice System, parenting, the Internet, grooming mechanisms, female abusers, the Sex Offenders Register and critically, why so many abusers target churches. Rebecca addresses the burning 'how does it happen' questions, and with refreshing honesty she tells us how she does her job.
^^Policing Innocence is powerful, challenging, shocking, funny, revealing, un-missable - it is a book your child needs you to read
Rebecca Andrews graduated from Goldsmiths College, London many moons ago, though she is keen to stress that she is still on the right side of forty. As a police officer she divided her service between frontline duties and the Child Protection Unit and Paedophile Unit. Without a doubt, she learnt as much about child protection from uniformed duties as from the Units, not to mention the steep learning curve of co-ordinating child protection at church, and being Mum to her two daughters.
She is married to a serving officer of higher rank than she is – not that it gets him very far behind their front door – and both she and her husband are committed Christians. Rebecca has authored the book Policing Innocence: Is your child really Safe?
