A new software system aimed at tracking down paedophiles on the internet has been developed by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) with the help of Microsoft. The system, known as Child Exploitation Tracking System (CETS) was developed following a personal plea to Bill Gates by Sergeant Paul Gillespie, a Canadian Police Detective in 2003.

Following the plea by email, Gates ordered a Microsoft team to help out the Canadian law enforcement authorities to develop the customised program they needed.

CETS is said to be a specially enhanced security database system. Based on open standards and running on a variety of different computer systems the flexibility allows the computer systems from different countries and with different technologies to communicate with one another and share information.
