The Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP) has published its annual review and centre plan.

In this annual review CEOP reveals that in 2012/2013 it safeguarded 790 children, an increase of 85% on the previous year. It dealt with 18,887 reports of abuse from the public and industry - a 14 per cent increase on the previous year with an average of 1,600 reports per month.

Over the next year, it intends to focus its activities on tackling the proliferation of indecent images of children; online child sexual exploitation; transnational child sexual abuse; and contact sexual abuse, particularly organised abuse and the risks posed to missing children.
