We're excited to announce that another Kinsa training session is underway this week with a team from South Africa. The training focuses on the state-of-the-art technology, tools and techniques involved in stopping the sexual exploitation of children on the Internet. For the South African team the training is part of a wider strategy to tighten efforts to protect and rescue children in
South Africa, and contribute to the global effort to combat online child abuse and exploitation around the world.
Law enforcement officials from around the world are eager to attend our unique training courses and, frankly, the world’s law enforcement agencies need the help.
In Canada, we are blessed with resources and dedicated police officers and prosecutors specializing in investigating and prosecuting these horrible crimes online, but even with this dedicated force we are falling behind. In many developing countries, police forces are only now starting to think about how to tackle this problem and they are years behind in technology, modern laws and the resources needed.
Meanwhile, more than 49,000 sexually abused children are presently unidentified and far too few international law enforcement agencies are doing anything to find them. Kinsa – together with our Canadian law enforcement partners – is changing this by building the capacity to investigate these crimes in countries around the world.
