We have decided to release a handful of faces that have been arrested for online grooming of a child over the last twelve months and are currently under investigation. If you recognise these individuals we would ask that you do not approach them especially they family or properties.
This has been shared for public protection. If this works as a deterrent and protects children we will continue to release faces of the people arrested.
Please be aware that some of these people have been charged and convicted, others are under investigation for child sex crimes. Their face has been displayed because of their arrest. Please remember these people are innocent until proven guilty.
All the pictures you see below have been in contact with our decoys and have been grooming someone they think is a child. The conversations all turn sexual extremely quickly, then they arrange to meet them but are greeted by officers from their local police force.
