  • ONLINE CHILD EXPLOITATION

    The European Union police agency Europol has launched a new campaign against online sexual coercion and extortion of children called "Say No". Supporting the campaign, Detective Superintendent Declan Daly from the Online Child Exploitation Unit (OCEU) at the Garda National Protective Services Bureau (GNPSB) was in studio to offer advice to parents and children.
    The online coercion and extortion of children is a form of digital blackmail, sometimes referred to as 'sextortion', where sexual information or images are used to extort sexual material, sexual favours or money from children. The "Say No" campaign is aimed primarily at children and young people who may be targeted online. The centrepiece of the campaign is a 10-minute video which can be viewed here: http://www.garda.ie

    Detective Superintendent Daly offered the following advice:

    • Protect your online life - use the maximum privacy settings.
    • Be aware that people online may not be who they claim to be
    • Keep control online - NEVER share explicit or intimate images with anyone.

    If you believe you are a victim of this type of crime, you should do the following:

    • Don't share any more images
    • Don't pay anything
    • Look for help. You are not alone
    • Preserve the evidence. Don't delete anything.
    • Stop the communication. Block the person.
    • Report it to An Garda Síochána.
