We are aware of a number of social media posts circulating which may identify potential victims of sexual offences in connection with the live investigation into Reynhard Sinaga.
We would like to stress that under the Sexual Offences (Amendment) Act 2000, victims of sexual offences have a lifelong right to anonymity and therefore any post which identifies victims of sexual offences constitutes a criminal offence. Additionally these posts risk jeopardising an ongoing investigation into serious crime.
Please be mindful when sharing any social media posts.
Our equality, diversity and human rights strategy 2018-21
Greater Manchester Police serves one of the most culturally diverse areas in the United Kingdom, and with our proud history of embracing diversity, we have people coming to live, work and study here from all over the world. Events held across Greater Manchester showcase our approach to welcoming and embracing difference and this has a national and international reach.
We have made some significant achievements since our last strategy was launched in 2014, for example due to greater community involvement and scrutiny the positive outcome rate for stop and search encounters has increased whilst the overall number of encounters has reduced and we have mental health professionals working with us in triaging and informing our response to calls for service.
In our new strategy for 2018-21 we have again set ourselves a number of stretching objectives, and rightly so, but our achievements over the past 4 years have provided a platform for us to build upon.
