Disturbing facts from our allies at OPP!

1. On December 5, 2018, the Ontario Provincial Police announced that their internet investigations
identified 55 child sexual abuse victims, leading to 551 charges against 122 people across the
province.

2. OPP Staff Sergeant Sharon Hanlon, co-ordinator of the provincial strategy, explained:
“People charged do not live in “the shadows,” but can be teachers, engineers, military people and,
often, relatives of the victims. Perpetrators of online sexual exploitation often minimize their actions
by saying they were ‘just looking.’ Let me be clear: Anyone who possesses, distributes, accesses or
otherwise supports the supply and demand chain for child sexual abuse images are complicit in the
sexual exploitation of children.”
