Child Sexual Exploitation

Who to contact


One of the biggest threats facing agencies  when tackling CSE is the large scale of cyber enabled abuse where victims have been groomed and abused through the use of social media applications (apps).  There are currently thousands of apps being used with developers creating new ones every day.  As a result the Police have developed an  App Guide created in an excel spread sheet called ‘CSE Social Media Library’ (attached) to record apps encountered within CSE, either through crimes, non-crimes, intelligence, referrals or through research. 

Please see the attached app guide on the right of this page for your information

If you become aware of an app that is not currently on the list and is causing concern, please notify us so that the guide can be updated via
