RCMP say it’s a troubling situation.
People in BC, sharing child porn online.
Inspector Ed Boettcher with the RCMP says The Mountie’s Integrated Child Exploitation Unit found over 1,200 transactions of child porn images exchanged online, unique to BC.
“It appears to show a significant increase in child pornography.”
Police are wrapping their heads around that information.
“This was the first time this was conducted in BC, so the numbers do not really, we can’t say right now whether it reflects a dramatic increase, but it’s more accurately reflects the scope of the issue.”
The investigation continues and we may see arrests and charges.
