AIC Occasional Seminar Series

Relationships and risk in online and offline child exploitation material (CEM) offending: The results of an exploratory Australian study

Associate Professor Tony Krone
74 Leichhardt Street, Griffith ACT - FREE EVENT
11:00am-12:00pm 27 November 2014

This seminar discusses the findings of a recent study of a selection of online CEM offenders in Australia. It examines the nature of the offenders; their offending; and the features that distinguish those offenders who are also known to commit contact and grooming offences. The results of the present study provide information about offenders who were investigated by the Child Protection Operations (CPO) unit of the Australian Federal Police (AFP) between 1 March 2005 and 31 December 2011 and who were convicted of an online child sexual exploitation offence arising from that investigation. The study is a collaborative project involving Tony Krone, Jenny Cartwright, Russell G Smith, Adam Tomison, Alice Hutchings and Sarah Macgregor.
