Police Detectives Speak about the Investigations Going On Against Parents Leaving Their Children At Home Alone

The article published in Sky News on 27 march 2015: (http://news.sky.com/story/1453590/home-alone-arrest-made-every-day-report) stresses that it is an offence if a child is left alone in a risky place. Parents and guardians are apprehended everyday for leaving children alone at home, unsupervised and at risk of physical danger. A study showed that 105 parents were arrested in the span of three months for leaving a child in a danger zone unattended. The cases involved children from the age of a few weeks to fourteen years old. Although there is no law specifying what age a child can be left alone at home, it is an offence if the child is left unprotected and in an environment that is deemed hazardous. Figures given by an investigation showed that thirty of the arrested parents were released without action; twenty four were given a warning whereas only nineteen were actually charged by the local authorities. The laws are slightly unclear on the situation when a child can be left unsupervised. For example, leaving a child in the car to fill up the car with gas is considered to be an offence, but sending an eight year old child alone to a park is not. Often, this leaves parents confused and unsure about what is wrong or right. Sadly, the only way to learn is to make a mistake and wait to be found out.

After reading the article in Sky News, Private Investigators in Stafford, http://privateinvestigator-stafford.co.uk talked about the necessity of investigating a case in detail before apprehending a parent. Often, officers put too much blame on a parent, without listening to an explanation, and charging the person over something uncontrollable. The detectives pointed out that parents cannot know what is against the law since the laws are not clear enough. Stressing on the need for a proper investigation, the Investigators sided with the parents when it came to arrest. The law is making it impossible for parents to know what to do in certain situations and more often than not it, unfortunately, leads to arrest.

Chief Investigator of the Private Investigators in Stafford, Henry Rogers, says, "Parents do not know what is right or wrong in what parents do. They are often confused because the situation turns out to be more of a misunderstanding than a deliberate attempt at harming the child." Rogers also stated that in case parents and law makers need help, the team of investigators was constantly available. The detective gave (h.rodgers@privateinvestigator-stafford.co.uk) a telephone number (01785 750 034) so that anyone who needs help in understanding the laws during an investigation can come to him for help.
