Resources for Law Enforcement


The Canadian Centre for Child Protection (Canadian Centre) provides services and resources to support the work of law enforcement on issues relating to missing and sexually exploited children. We do this by providing prevention and education resources that promote public safety and reduce child victimization. The Canadian Centre also provides direct support to families and communities by responding to incidences of missing and sexually exploited children.

If you are encountering questions or concerns from the public related to child sexual abuse concerns, child exploitation or missing children that do not appear to meet the threshold of intervention for law enforcement, please feel free to refer the caller for support to the Canadian Centre for Child Protection at 1-866-543-8477 or via this contact form.

In an effort to provide law enforcement agencies (LEA) rapid access to our resources and services, this site has been organized by the following categories:

  • Services to support LEA: Includes resources specific to online child exploitation, child sexual abuse, missing children and youth, trafficking and sexual exploitation, school and community based officers and media/communications officers.
  • Research: Review the latest research projects and initiatives by the Canadian Centre.
  • Collaboration: Learn how your agency can work more closely with the Canadian Centre by implementing a formalized protocol.
  • Connect with your LEA Liaison: Includes contact information for the Canadian Centre’s Policing Relations Liaison.

We would also encourage you to learn more about our training opportunities, including our annual Missing and Exploited Children Training Conference.
