REPORTING ONLINE CHILD ABUSE
Australian Federal Police
The AFP investigates online child exploitation which occurs using a telecommunications service, such as computers with internet
connectivity or mobile phones. The types of offences investigated include accessing, sending or uploading child exploitation and
Grooming and procuring of children over the internet is also investigated by the AFP.
This is when an adult has made online contact
with a child under the age of sixteen with the intention of facilitating a sexual relationship.
In April, 2010, the Australian Government introduced changes to legislation which increased the penalties applying to these offences.
Australians who groom or procure a child for sexual activity overseas can be imprisoned for up to 15 years. The reforms also enhanced
the coverage of offences for using a carriage service, such as the internet, for sexual activity with a child or for child abuse material.
AFP investigations may also focus on Internet sites carrying child abuse material and operated from an ISP in Australia. In cases where
the site content is not hosted within Australia, the matter is referred to overseas law enforcement agencies.
If you know about a child who is in immediate danger or risk call 000, Crimestoppers on 1800 333 000, or contact your local police.
Virtual Global Taskforce
The VGT is actively involved in investigating suspicious behaviour online with or towards a child.
The Report Abuse button is an effective mechanism for reporting suspected sexual predator behaviour.

have reasonable grounds to believe is child pornography or child abuse material to the Australian Federal Police (AFP),
when amendments to the Criminal Code Act 1995 (Criminal Code) commence on 1 March 2005.
The AFP works in partnership with Internet Service Providers (ISP) and Internet Content Hosts (ICH)
in the battle against the sexual exploitation of children online.
If you are an ISP or ICH and have become aware of child exploitation or child abuse material on your
server(s), then you are required to report this to the AFP.

information on the Legislative responsibilities of ISPs and ICHs.
