Dreamcatchers For Abused Children Store

At least one child every six hours falls victim to a sexual predator in Scotland, a study has revealed.

But experts fear the total is likely to be far higher.

This is because most Scots police forces do not keep records discriminating between child and adult victims of the most serious sex crimes, such as rape.

At least 1592 offences against children were reported in 2009 – more than four a day.

Victims suffered ordeals ranging from rape to indecent exposure. Strathclyde Police, Scotland’s biggest force, recorded the most crimes against kids, with at least 547 allegations of offences against under-16s.

Labour’s justice spokesman Richard Baker said the shocking statistics represented a one-third rise in lewd and libidinous behaviour.

He added: “You can judge a society by the way it cares for its children and these figures are, frankly, appalling.”

Chief executive of Children First Ann Houston warned that the figures were just the tip of the iceberg.

She said: “It is vital that Scotland’s police forces take action to ensure that accurate data is collected for those instances they know about.”

The Association of Chief Police Officers in Scotland attributed the rise to more people coming forward and insisted protecting the public was a “fundamental priority”.

Assistant Chief Constable Iain Livingstone said: “A significant proportion of the recorded crimes occurred a number of years ago.

“The increase indicates there is now greater public awareness of the damage caused by child abuse.”
