Juvenile Protection Police Force Trained to Tackle OCSE

Siem Reap: On June 22-23, a two-day skill training on Responding to Online Child Sexual Exploitation (OCSE) was organised by APLE in cooperation with the Cambodian National Police, bringing together 17 senior police officials of the Anti-human Trafficking and Juvenile Protection units from five different cities/provinces (Phnom Penh, Siem Reap, Banteay Meanchey, Battambang and Kampong Thom). This training was designed to enhance the skills on investigation of online sexual crimes against children, victim identification, child sexual abuse material tracing, and related legal framework addressing these crimes.

The whole session went deep into the understanding of key terminologies related to the manifestations of OCSE (Online Grooming, CSAM, Sexting, Sextortion, Live Streaming of Child Sexual Content) and Internet technicalities/tools (IP Tracing, AI, Filtering/Blocking, Notice-Takedown, End to End Encryption, ToR Browser, DarkWeb, Photo DNA).

In addition, the training involved international and national laws and legal tools that are in place to address OCSE cases, using the available law related to OCSE to assist in the prosecution of offenders and deal with reports of OCSE.

The training also provided room for important discussions, allowing the participants to share experience and give insights on how the Internet hotline can help tackle CSAM and in what ways law enforcement, industry and NGOs can work together to effectively respond to OCSE cases.

This was one of the training sessions in series APLE has planned to conduct this year for the specialised police force, with the financial support from Terre des Hommes Netherlands. The next regional training will be carried out in Kep in late July, this year.
