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

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
