We simply won’t tolerate indecent imagery of children.
That’s the message from Essex Police – who’ve extended a crackdown on downloading and distributing the content.
In November last year, using an intelligence-led approach, a dedicated team of specialist officers have targeted those involved in the downloading taking and distribution of indecent images of children.
The team, working alongside and in support of Essex Police’s existing specialist Police Online Investigation Team (POLIT) and Child Abuse Investigation Teams (CAIT), executed 44 warrants and arrested 43 people.
Essex Police has now announced that the additional officers will continue their crackdown on these offenders until March 2018. Their work will continue to support the ongoing work of our existing specialist teams.
