Raids on net paedophiles

Date: April 25, 2006

The Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP) will be staffed 24 hours a day by about 100 police, computer technicians and child welfare specialists.

Based in London, it is affiliated to the Serious Organised Crime Agency, the UK's new FBI-style organisation.

But with 20,000 people regularly accessing illegal images via the internet in the UK, and twice as many paedophile websites reported in 2005 than the year before, will it make a difference?

The key to its success could be having so many different agencies involved, says John Carr, an adviser on new technology to the children's charity, NCH.

"For the first time they're bringing under one physical roof all of the key players who have a stake in this," he said.
