The Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre has published its Annual Review 2011-2012 and 2012-2013 Centre Plan.

A key area of attention in the coming year will be those who share indecent images of children and try to hide their digital footprints in online environments where other sex offenders operate.

Other key threat areas the Centre will be prioritising in order to fight child sex abuse include:

  • Those who produce, distribute and possess child abuse images
  • Targeting sex offenders who are exploiting children’s vulnerability online
  • Travelling sex offenders
  • Group and gang related child sexual exploitation
CEOP also released figures for the past year in its 2011-2012 Annual Review, showing 427 children had been safeguarded as a direct result of its activity and 192 suspects arrested.
