Online child sexual exploitation doesn’t happen in Australia
5 / 9

Australian law enforcement continues to disrupt online child sex offender networks in Australia.

Children and young people are groomed online to produce child abuse material both overseas and locally.

This material is sought after by offenders from within Australia and around the world.

From June 2019 – July 2020 the Australian Centre to Counter Child Exploitation received more than 21,000 reports of child exploitation.

Information provided by you can help keep children safe online.

You can report inappropriate behaviour towards children to the Australian Centre to Counter Child Exploitation.
