The essential guide to IT transformation

Online child pornophiles are to be investigated for real world child abuse, under new Government guidelines. The proposals come as part of the updated 'Working Together' programme, set up in the wake of the Cleveland "satanic" child abuse scandal in the early 1980s. Police will be expected to establish if people convicted of trafficking or using computer child porn have contact with children, and to cross check in case any children been flagged as at risk of abuse. The report now recommends that all cases of adult domestic violence now be scrutinised for evidence of child abuse, and also acknowledges that children can be at risk from their peers. A spokesman for the Association of Chief Police Officers commented: "The new guidelines will provide a firm foundation for future working practices." Junior Health Minister, John Hutton, said that the document would continue stress the importance of shared responsibility. He said that it set out a clear framework for health professionals, teachers, social workers and police to work with families, to protect vulnerable children. ® The Register's Full Coverage/child pornography
