Inside sources have told us that she faces the parole board soon and would like to be released in time for Christmas.

Now a source who cannot be named within the prison service has told Police Hour that Tracey Connelly is facing a parole board before Christmas and is hoping to be cleared for release, She believes it would be the perfect Christmas gift.

Not only is she allowed to write letters and send gifts to her children she could soon be released and launch a legal bid to see them face to face. She will Argue that the prison service has reformed her.

She now believes she has the right to freedom like every other loving mother and father. Despite allowing one of her own children to be tortured to death.

Sick Mother Tracey Connelly stood by and watched her partner as he tortured Baby P and smothered him in chocolate so the police and social services would never see his injuries.

Recently Connelly was granted permission to now be able to write and build a relationship with her children, despite the tragic death of Baby P.

She has not been granted face to face contact they’ll only be allowed to send letters which will be vetted by the prison and social services first.

l workers have granted the access to enable Connelly to rebuild her relationship with her family as she prepares to face a parole board for release.

She is hoping for a second chance at being a mother after her sentencing for her part in the death of Baby P who was tortured by her partner.

Connelly stood by and enabled her own baby boy to be repeatedly attacked and tortured.

We do not know if Tracey was herself attacked and abused such as a domestic abuse victim.

But nevertheless she stood by and saw her own child starved, brutally attacked he tragically died in 2007 after sustaining over 50 injuries.

Blaming social services

We cannot blame social services for allowing contact, because if they refused access they’d be breaking the law.

This is because a parent despite being convicted has legal parental rights and no one can block the contact, social services have a duty to explore this.

We do not know the facts, but it’s not nice whichever way we look at it, but simply these children may have requested contact with there mum.

For those children, we must remember they have lost their mum and dad, and without knowing the facts we have to be careful as social services could be helping the children cope with loss and grief.

As members of the public, we have been allowed to move on but these children’s lives have been ripped apart.

The Baby P Case

Baby P (Peter) sadly died in 2007 aged just 17 months. He was tortured and was found with more than 50 injuries when he died.

Police and social workers visited Baby P in his Haringey, North London home more than 60 times.

His mother Tracey, her partner Steven Barker & his brother Jason Owen a paedophile tortured him.

Both Connelly and Owen were jailed indefinitely meaning they must face a parole board before they can be released.

Steven Barker was jailed for 12 years.

Connelly was granted release on licence in 2013 but after 18 months she was recalled to prison after she was found to be selling indecent images of herself online on the back of the death of Baby P.

David McGreavy who was sentenced to life 1973 for killing Paul aged 4, Dawn aged 2 and 9 month old Samantha while he baby sat them in their Worcester Home.

The children's mother Elsie Urry has begged that he stays locked up and is not released.

But the Parole Board have said that the triple child killer has "changed considerably" after spending 45 years in prison.

He murdered three children and impaled them on a fence and has now been cleared following an oral hearing for release.

He murdered the children because one of the children would not stop crying . 

He strangled Paul at the home in Gillam Street, Rainbow Hill, while Dawn was found with her throat cut. Samantha died from a compound fracture to the skull.

On the night of the killings he had babysat the children for up to an hour so she could work in a pub.

Cleveland Police: the past is a living breathing thing which continues to haunt us today. Past mistakes, failures of leadership and failures of moral courage,

Cleveland Police Chief Constable Mike Veale has today made an honest reflection of Cleveland Police and the challenges he faces.

In a rare, frank & honest statement CC Veale admits that the past mistakes, failures of leadership and failures of moral courage continue to haunt the force.

Today the Chief Constable has discussed the complex challenges that Cleveland Police face.

Last week Cleveland Police Chief Constable Mike Veale outlined the challenges facing the police service in the modern age.

Today he expands on this to include more details about the particular issues facing Cleveland Police.

Past mistakes continue to haunt Cleveland Police

Significant failure of previous senior leaders continues to have an impact on front line policing

Funding formula penalises most vulnerable communities

We can be great if we police with pride and courage.

Statement by Chief Constable Mike Veale

For Cleveland Police the past is not a foreign country; the past is a living breathing thing which continues to haunt us today.

Past mistakes, failures of leadership and failures of moral courage, drain resources and take officers off our streets.

Let’s not pretend that there have not been significant failures of leadership historically at Cleveland Police at the very highest level. These will not be repeated on my watch.

One of the reasons I accepted the office of Chief Constable at Cleveland Police was to address these failures and it was the determination of Police and Crime Commissioner Barry Coppinger to do the same that convinced me it was the right move.

We have a strong partnership and my leadership is immeasurable strengthened by the work instigated and passionately championed by the PCC, especially the whole system transformation of our professional standards department and world class Everyone Matters equality and diversity project.

Every day of the week there are officers and staff out on our streets keeping people safe and protecting our communities by showing the utmost courage.

Policing in the 21 Century is a risky business where criminals are more sophisticated, more resourceful and more dangerous than they ever have been before.

Every day of the week that courage and tenacity results in dangerous criminals being locked up, vulnerable people being protected and members of the public helped in their greatest hour of need.

Past leaders have let these brave officers down. They have failed to show the courage and tenacity required to support front line colleagues.

Within a few months of my joining Cleveland Police as the Chief Constable I made it clear to all my staff that I want them to push the boundaries, be on the front foot, be in the face of criminals and be audacious in their approach.

Those who say that the police service has had a culture of blame where risk aversion has been debilitating and impaired the trust and confidence of leadership in rank and file are right. This will not happen in my force.

All of this is true, but we must also recognise that there are many complex issues which impact on how we serve our communities and that while simply crying ‘austerity’ is not good enough and no one in policing today can claim it isn’t a factor.

Forces across the country including Cleveland are more efficient and more effective than ever before but despite this efficiency the service we are providing the public is nowhere near where it needs to be.

There are some that claim the funding formula is fair. How can it be fair when the most vulnerable, those most at risk, are penalised just because they live a particular town or community? How is that fair? All areas are not the same. All areas do not face the same problems.

I would not be exhibiting the courage that my officers and staff deserve if I continue to say we have enough resources, if I continue with this commentary that things in policing are okay. They are not okay. The cuts created and caused by austerity are too deep and have gone on for too long.

This is not just the view of one Chief Constable in isolation. Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire & Rescue Services has said of Cleveland Police that our capacity to absorb further unexpected costs and pressures is limited.

They also report that our future financial plans have little room for movement in police numbers and recognise that the force would need to stop providing a service to achieve future savings.

We have brilliant people doing a brilliant job but we do not have enough of them and the facts speak for themselves.

It is about time that trend was reversed so that we can protect our communities, protect the most vulnerable and protect everyday people who go about their business and protect them with courage, kindness and compassion.

In all of this we must not forget that we are part of a proud heritage, a heritage stretching back further even than the formation of the modern police service.

We have a responsibility to those that came before us to serve with pride, lead with conviction and embody the best characteristics of British policing; fair play, equality before the law and justice for all.

By leading with courage, and I will lead with courage, we can ensure that we do more than simply avoid the mistakes of the past. We can, in this small corner of England, represent all that is best, all that is great, about policing.

Funding & the Facts within Cleveland Police.

Over the last 8 years the Government Grant for policing and crime in Cleveland has been cut by £25.4m.

We have moved from a budget of £148.5m to pay for policing, to £134.6m to pay for policing, community safety and victims and witnesses services.

We therefore have £14m (or 10%) less in cash terms but more responsibilities.

In addition to this, what we can buy with our money now is less than we would have been able to in 2010/11, because of the impact of inflation, pay awards and numerous government policies/decisions - such as National Insurance Increases, the Apprenticeship Levy, unfunded pay awards, and a very significant risk in relation to Employer’s contribution costs that are forecast to materialise in 2019/20.

In real terms Policing in Cleveland is £39m worse off in 2018/19 than it was in 2010/11.

This has resulted in the loss of 500 police officers and 50 PCSOs since 2010, in the face of increasing demand from additional and complex crimes such as historical child sexual abuse and cybercrime.
