Closing the Net (podcast)

Australian Centre to Counter Child Exploitation

‘Closing The Net’ is a podcast series that  takes you inside the world of the Australian Federal Police and those policing the ‘borderless crime’ of online child sexual exploitation.  Research conducted by the ACCCE in 2020 has shown that in Australia today, only around half of all parents talk to their children about online safety. 50% of parents don’t know what to do to keep their kids safe online. Just 3% of parents are concerned about online grooming. And sadly, most believe online child sexual exploitation is too repulsive to even think about.  ‘Closing The Net’ is working to change that, showcasing that knowledge is power and that our only chance to eradicate this issue is if we bring a ‘whole-of-community’ response.
