Abusive online activity

Most young people enjoy surfing the internet, however certain activities can be very risky.  There have been lots and lots of instances when young people are put at risk from chatting with others who they don't know and have no way of telling if the person they are chatting with is who they really are. If you are concerned about something that may have happened online, you can take immediate control by visiting the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre ('CEOP').
