Police Records Of Sexual Offences By Minors Surged

Filed under: Netherlands — limewoody @ 10:59 am
UTRECHT, 17/11/06 – The number of children coming up against the police due to a sexual offence has tripled in the past fifteen years.

In 1990, police had contact with just under 400 minors on a sexual offence. Fifteen years later, this was nearly 1,200, the Police Academy in Utrecht reported at a study day on the subject. The numbers having to answer for rape increased particularly explosively.

Because most sexual offences are not reported to the police, the figures likely represent only a fraction of the total. Police Academy researcher Anton van Wijk confirmed that he suspects that less than 10 percent of the victims report sexual offences.
