Thames Valley Police – Online Child Sexual Abuse Campaign

In March, reports of online child sexual abuse in the Thames Valley were 146% higher than the number of reports received in March 2019.

With the government restrictions in place, many children are spending more time online to stay in touch with friends and loved ones as well as a way to stay entertained. We are looking to encourage parents and carers to take action in protecting their children from falling victim to online sexual abuse.
