Centre to tackle net paedophiles

PUBLISHED April 1, 2005

A unit to protect children in the UK from internet paedophiles is being set up by the Home Office.

About 100 staff, including police, customs officers and child welfare experts will join the Centre for Child Protection on the Internet next April.
The centre will take on work being done by the National Crime Squad and will target those who distribute child porn images or "groom" children for abuse.
It will be open 24 hours a day so people can report suspicious activity.
