Welcome to another week.

Home Secretary Amber Rudd would like to set up specialist training for police officers dealing with child sexual abuse. Under the current proposal, police officers would be trained and accredited in the same way officers carrying firearms are. Once officers passed the training, they would then be awarded a license.

The idea comes after a damning report into the Metropolitan Police revealed that mistakes were made in 75% of cases involving child abuse.

It is not clear what kind of training the police might receive or how long the training will last.

Our question then, is this: do you think specialist training for police working on child abuse cases is a good idea?
