We have a duty to protect the most vulnerable in our society. Children must not and cannot be abused and to have such images proliferate around the globe only perpetuates their victimization. We stand strong against the individuals who commit such criminal offences, often unseen and bold enough to be thought anonymous. The professional and exhaustive work of our investigators, computer crime analysts and support staff will shed light on their activities and hold them accountable. The partnerships we have with the OPP, other municipal police services and both provincial and federal agencies advances our work and ensures its continuing success.” – Staff Sergeant Chris Scott, Supervisor of Kingston Police Criminal Investigations

The most fundamental responsibility of any society is to protect its children. Every child has the right to be nurtured and the right to be safe. The Provincial Strategy demonstrates the success that police services worldwide can achieve when working together and sharing our best practices and information.” – Chief Superintendent Don BELL, Commander of OPP Investigation and Support Bureau
