New Web site targets online child abuse

A Web site launched yesterday as part of a collaborative effort by law enforcement agencies on three continents is intended to serve as a global resource for helping to prevent child abuse online. Virtual Global Taskforce, created through a partnership between law enforcement agencies and industry in Australia, the United Kingdom, Canada, the United States and Interpol, aims to become a “one-stop shop” for information about child protection online. It will provide pointers to information on how children can use the Internet safely and to support agencies that can advise and support victims of abuse.
