Cops might just have a new weapon to fight pedophiles: the Child Exploitation Tracking System. CETS is a computer system that allows global police agencies to share information for tracking online pedophiles.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police, the Toronto Police Service and Microsoft Canada joined to develop CETS -- a security-enhanced database that can run on a variety of computer systems. CETS uses open standards to allow computer systems from different countries and with different technologies to communicate with one another.

The software is designed to allow police to speak to each other in real time across cities and countries.
