Operation Linden recommendations - South Yorkshire Police and College of Policing, November 2021

We identified organisational learning from 91 investigations completed so far, under the umbrella of Operation Linden. Operation Linden investigated a significant number of complaints and allegations relating to the police response to non-recent child sexual exploitation in the Rotherham area. Our learning recommendations focus on the recurring themes or issues identified. We discussed our learning with South Yorkshire Police, interested stakeholders and our own staff who worked on these investigations.
