In the event that there is evidence that an offender reported in an incident has committed another offence and there is an investigation on-going or that the police have other information relating to the offender, the police or relevant authority may ask us to make contact with you on their behalf to further their enquiries.
Hence member projects may be asked to be intermediaries between their service users and the police as in many local schemes.
5) Individual membership is for personal use only and while individual members can make third party reports, log in details must not be shared.
6) Organisation members must be security conscious when allowing staff to log-in to the Scheme and it is the responsibility of their key contact person to ensure that staff comply with the terms and conditions of their organisation’s membership.
There are three types of membership: This type of membership is designed for any agency doing some form of frontline work with sex workers.
Some will already be operating or be a partner agency or file holder in an established ‘ugly mugs’, ‘dodgy punter’ or ‘assisted reporting’ scheme.
It is open to any sex worker in the UK or Eire regardless of gender or working type.
To become an individual member we require some very basic personal information.
When you join the scheme as an individual sex worker, your information will be held on a secure server.
Although it is extremely unlikely, as with any online data storage, there is always the risk of somebody trying to hack that information.
Monitoring is crucial to the success of this scheme and information you provide when you register such as gender, sector of work and area of work may be used for monitoring purposes but you WILL NOT be personally identified.
Additionally, if we were ever ordered by a court to reveal people’s information, all we would have would be an email and/or mobile number and a name.
Once registered as members, projects and sex workers can submit information and reports and receive alerts.
