International Criminal Police Organisation (INTERPOL) will give a special training to Kerala Police, which observes 2019 as the ‘Year of Cyber Security’ based on its policy of Zero Tolerance towards child pornography and crimes against children.

“The INTERPOL, which recognised the good work done by Kerala Police in the area of countering online child pornography and exploitation against children, has invited Kerala Police to its headquarters in Lyon France in November 2019 to speak on our success story,” a police official said in Thiruvananthapuram  on Sunday.

“The INTERPOL has also agreed to conduct a special training for Kerala Police officers in the first week of March 2020 to counter child pornography,” he added.
Kerala DGP Loknath Behra has constituted a Counter Child Sexual Exploitation (CCSE) Unit for Kerala Police with special emphasis on preventing online Child exploitation and child pornography on the net.

The CCSE Unit has become fully functional from January-2019 onwards at the Hi- tech cell and Kerala Police Cyberdome. “Several WhatsApp groups and social media platforms are being closely monitored to track the suspects who are viewing, sharing and distributing child porn,” he added.  (UNI)
