Cayman joins the world in the fight against child abusers, who post illicit images or videos of youngsters online.
The Internet Watch Foundation has launched across all the Overseas Territories. It makes it easier for people to report child abuse imagery they find on the net.
Here in Cayman, police urge people to use the service, which is available through a number of local websites, including our own, cayman27.ky
Detectives say policing the internet can only be achieved through international efforts.
Absolutely crucial. Critical. And that’s why we’re pleased to join up with the IWF,” said Detective Superintendent Mike Cranswick.
“We already work with other law enforcement worldwide. Interpol, our colleagues in the US, National Crime Agency.
“The internet is an extremely difficult place to police, so we do rely on our worldwide partners. They provide us with the information we need, for us to then conduct our investigations. And we have seen people before the courts for the possession and distribution of child pornography.”
Any sites online that show abusive images of children can be reported to the authorities.
