A conference to help police capture online child predators is launched today.

The International Centre for Missing and Exploited Children (ICMEC) is running the four-day Conference on Computer-Facilitated Crimes Against Children at the headquarters of international police agency Interpol in Lyon, France.

This brings together law enforcement reps for extensive training on "investigating online child predators, collecting evidence and computer forensic information, and seeking private industry assistance in child exploitation investigations.

"Trainees will learn technical investigative techniques, forensic skills and how to psychologically assess predators," ICMEC says.

Microsoft is sponsoring the conference and delegates from 36 countries are attending.

The ICMEC training programme is an important component of a 10-point agenda developed during the first Global Forum on Child Pornography in Dublin, Ireland in October last year.

ICMEC plans to run up to 10 training programmes a year around the world. ®
