Services & Resources to Support Law Enforcement: Media & Communications Officers

When children are victimized, the public often turn to police for reassurance. C3P has resources that you can share to help restore a sense of safety and control for families and communities, build awareness, and encourage public engagement in child safety issues.

Media and communications officers are encouraged to download our Child Safety Resources: Media Guide for Police, which highlights programs and resources that you may wish to share with the public regarding child sexual abuse and risk of victimization, as well as emerging online safety issues and strategies, and reference the resources in media releases, press conferences, social media posts, and on service websites.

Information for Media Officers: Separating the Issue of Child Sexual Abuse and Online Safety

Child sexual abuse begins offline — in homes and communities — and only thereafter, through a recording of the abuse, ends up online as child sexual abuse images and videos.

When addressing the issue of child sexual abuse imagery (child pornography) with the public, it’s important to understand that providing parents and children with online safety strategies will not address the issue of child sexual abuse.

Online safety strategies are more appropriately shared with tweens and teens that have increased independence online and may encounter risks while navigating the online world.

Follow Us on Social Media

Law enforcement is encouraged to post about C3P’s educational resources to draw attention to the issue of online and personal safety.

C3P regularly posts about our online and personal safety resources on social media, so spreading the word can be as simple as a re-tweet or share. To keep up to date, follow us on Twitter at @CdnChildProtect, like us on Facebook, and follow us on Instagram at @cdnchildprotect.
