Crime Stoppers joined forces with the eSafety Commissioner (eSafety) for a Child Protection campaign, to help combat child sexual abuse and unwanted contact, online. The education and awareness campaign focuses on child sexual abuse material and unwanted contact online.
Predators are increasingly gaining access to children online through popular apps, games and social media sites to solicit sexual images or video, or harm them physically.
Research by eSafety has revealed 1 in 4 young people have been contacted by a stranger online. The joint campaign will help parents and carers understand the warning signs of unwanted contact, protect their child’s privacy online, and to report suspicious activity.
Crime Stoppers is asking the community to be vigilant online. If someone suspects or sees something related to online child sexual abuse it should be reported immediately so action can be taken.
Call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 for a confidential conversation, or report securely online at www.crimestoppers.com.au.
