Charity welcomes internet monitoring

    Children’s charity NCH has welcomed plans to monitor internet chat
    rooms to identify paedophiles.

    The idea came from the UK National Crime Squad last week at a
    virtual summit on protecting children, which also included
    delegates from the US, Australia and Canada.

    National Crime Squad assistant chief constable Jim Gamble said law
    enforcement agencies, children’s charities and internet service
    providers needed to campaign for the issue to be placed high on the
    political agenda.

    NCH internet adviser John Carr said the proposals would create an
    international policing agency focused on child safety on the
    internet. “The internet is now a less safe place for paedophiles
    and that means it’s getting safer for children all the time,” said
    Carr.
