Police detections of child porn images increases by 48%
"The number of detected crimes of people accessing illegal images of children has gone up by 48% in four years, according to research by BBC News.
The figures are for England and Wales and show the increase between 2007-11.
A charity which works with offenders to stop them accessing images said there were many more offenders and that it was impossible to arrest everyone.
The Home Office said it was working with the police and industry to make the internet a safer place [sic].
The figures were obtained under the Freedom of Information Act from the 34 police forces in England and Wales that were able to provide data for the crimes of possession of an indecent or pseudo photograph of a child and possessing prohibited images of children.
In 2007, 919 crimes were detected by the police, however in 2011, this had risen to 1,362.
For crimes that were reported to the police, the increase was 46%.
The figures were analysed and verified by the chairman of the Crime and Justice Statistics Network, Professor Allan Brimicombe."

Can child porn users be treated? [sic]
"Sex offenders' [sic] home internet use can be monitored by the police via a new computer programme
A child protection charity says it is impossible to catch every person who looks at indecent images and more needs to be done to stop people from looking at them.
It comes as research by BBC News has found that the number of detected crimes of accessing illegal images has increased by 48% in four years.
But what impact can these images have and what can be done to stop people looking at them?"
Child Porn [law] Is A Much Bigger Problem Than You Realize
Research with internet offenders
"Initial research findings into the motivations, behaviour and actions of people who view indecent images of children (often referred to as child pornography) have been released by the Lucy Faithfull Foundation.
The qualitative research involved hearing from Internet Offenders in their own words about what prompted them to begin viewing indecent images of children; how their illegal behaviour developed over time; methods used to find and view images; potential strategies for desisting; and how they are managing this behaviour at present.
It is hoped the research will lead to the development and implementation of new strategies to tackle the global problem of indecent images of children, in particular to prevent the first viewing of child sexual abuse images.
