Sexually Abusing Children Interests An Estimated 20,000 British Men, Shows Police Monitoring Of Chat Sites
In a startling revelation, the police chief in charge of child protection in the U.K. says the sexual abuse children is a subject of interest for tens of thousands of British men.
 
4,000 men using it from the UK alone were found to be using a single online chatroom in 2017 after a monitoring of chatrooms by investigators, said Simon Bailey.
 
An estimate of over 2000 men was made about those men who are interested in sexually abusing children, according to Bailey, the National Police Chiefs’ Council lead on child protection. It is the same number as of the present and former terrorism suspects, he said.
 
Because of the fact that police is forced to concentrate on the most dangerous offenders, therefore all of the offenders is not possible to be tackled due to limited resources, he said. “We are having to prioritise the threat,” he said. “Some lower-level offenders cannot be arrested and taken to court. There is just not the capacity.”
 
Live streaming was identified as the source of the growing threat to children by him and added that the police demands that the tech companies conduct a serious offensive against using of online platforms such as Periscope, that is part of Twitter, and Facebook Live.
 
There have been recent reports that there has been a rise in abusive behavior and Bailey’s warning follows such reports. In 2016, a significant rise of 31 percent in the number of cases that were reported of child sexual abuse in the UK was noted by the NSPCC child protection charity earlier in the month.
 
Reports to child protection experts saw an increase of 700% since October 2013, Bailey said, even though some said that this rise is primarily due to a greater intention to report such crimes.
 
72,000 referrals related to online child sexual abuse imagery were received by the National Crime Agency during the first 11 months of 2017.  That figure was 6,000 in 2010.
 
Despite the fact that there is a growing awareness of child abuse, Bailey said that he was sure that the threats had also grown. Bailey is the chief constable of Norfolk. “I think there is more sexual abuse of children being perpetrated both physically and virtually,” he said. “There are more men than five to 10 years ago who are trying to abuse children.”
 
There were also severe consequences of online abuse, he emphasized. “If a child flashes their breasts to someone online it can still cause great damage [to that child].
 
“I believe there are tens of thousands of men that are now going into chatrooms and forums with a view to grooming children,” he added. “Technology has afforded an access to children that people who have a sexual interest in children never had before.”
 
“There are hundreds of officers tackling this now,” he said. “Thousands and thousands still would not be enough. This is one of those wicked problems we simply cannot arrest our way out of.”
