Child exploitation guidance for taxi and private vehicle hire drivers

What to do if you have concerns about a child

If you think the young person is at imminent risk of harm, call 999 to report your concerns.

Offer support to the child:

  • Ask if they are ok
  • Check that they are not receiving unwanted attention
  • Check whether they know who they are with and if they feel safe
  • Being with them
  • Offer to call a parent or carer

Information to share can include:

  • Names, locations and addresses
  • Descriptions of people
  • Car registration plates, make and models of vehicles

Report the concerns:

In an emergency always call 999

Make a note of your information, what you see and hear and with your concerns call Staffordshire Police on 101 if you require a non-emergency response or advice.
