What We Do

The Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP) Centre is dedicated to eradicating the sexual abuse of children. That means we are part of UK policing and very much about tracking and bringing offenders to account either directly or in partnership with local and international forces.

But our approach is truly holistic. Walk through the CEOP Centre today and within any one team you will find police officers specialising in this area of criminality working with professionals from the wider child protection community and industry. You will find seconded staff from organisations such as the NSPCC, teams sponsored by the likes of VISA and SERCO and experts from government and corporations such as Microsoft offering specialist advice and guidance.
 

That approach is dedicated to building up intelligence that in turn drives the business, informs our operational deployments, steers our CEOP Academy programmes to law enforcement, child protection and educational sectors and drives our dedicated Thinkuknow programme for children and parents of all ages.

It is an approach that sees the development of specialist areas such as our Behavioural Analysis Unit, our approach to victim identification or the development of our Child Trafficking Unit as well as filtering into all areas of our outreach activities such as the Most Wanted initiative and our public awareness plans.

In fact the real lifeblood of the CEOP Centre is intelligence - how offenders operate and think, how children and young people behave and how technological advances are developing - all are integral to what we are about and what we deliver.

But similarly our results would not be possible without inclusion. So we are about opening the policing doors to new ways of thinking around this crime, working with industry, government, children's charities and the wider policing community to explore all options and possibilities. In fact we want and will explore all options because we believe you can never stand still when dealing with such a complex, ever changing issue and where apathy can and does result in devastating consequences.

ONLINE SAFETY: A SHORT GUIDE FOR PARENTS                                                                                                                                                

The internet can play an important part in many aspects of school life, including teaching, learning and improving communication.  However, if not used properly, it can be dangerous or harmful.  This simple guide includes hints and tips for both parents and pupils.
 

Hints & Tips for Parents

Technology is constantly changing and young people are continually learning – keep up to date on latest developments so you know about the risks.

Online safety applies to all types of devices – PCs, laptops, tablets, smartphones, e-readers and online gaming

As technology becomes more portable, set guidelines for where your child could/should use their device

Treat online safety in the same way as you would offline safety such as stranger danger, crossing the road etc.

Set up internet security so children can’t access websites with adult and inappropriate content

Don’t write anything online that you wouldn’t say in person.  Comments made on social media and/or public web pages/forums could reflect badly on your child

Check out our IT policies, particularly the online safety policy, and adhere to them

Cyber bullying should be treated in the same way as other forms of bullying; contact your child’s school to agree a plan for dealing with it

Be aware that “sexting” increasingly involves younger children, some as young as 10

Try to establish a system which allows your child to take to you about anything they feel uncomfortable about online

 

Things to Discuss with Children

Where it is acceptable to use your portable device? Bedroom? School?

Who should you talk to if you feel uncomfortable about something you have seen online? e.g. parent, teacher or other responsible adult

Don’t spend too long online; make sure you get some physical exercise every day

Keep passwords safe – don’t write them down and change them regularly

What personal information is it appropriate to post online?

How do you report cyber bullying? Take a screen grab of any posts so these can be seen at a later date if needed.

How do you know the people you are talking to online, are who you think they are?

What is the difference between a ‘real life’ friend and an ‘online friend’.

Is it ever sensible to meet up with an online friend?
