The Child Exploitation and Online Protection (Ceop) centre has urged police forces to prioritise the investigation of anyone caught with child abuse images who has easy access to children.
In a perfect world all IIOC (indecent images of children) possession cases would be subject to a comprehensive, quick time investigation as soon as intelligence comes to the attention of law enforcement.
"However in a time where resource is sparse and priorities continually modified, this has become increasingly unachievable.
"Anyone who possesses IIOC poses a risk of committing contact sexual offences against children.
"Cases where it has been identified that an IIOC possession suspect has access to children should be actioned as an immediate priority.".
