The Child Expolitation and Online Protection Centre was launched a few weeks ago and according to press releases, the CEOP is set to be ‘the most significant development in child protection to date.’
For the first time ever and, in a model that other countries are already studying, the organisation will bring together law enforcement officers, specialists from children’s charities and industry to work in unison under one roof. This will provide a unique holistic approach to the growing problem of child abuse. Already, major corporations such as Microsoft, AOL and VISA, as well as children’s charities including the NSPCC and Childnet International have put considerable resources and weight behind the new initiative.
