Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre

What is CEOP?

The Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP) Centre is dedicated to eradicating the sexual abuse of children. The CEOP Centre is part of UK policing and very much about tracking and bringing offenders to account either directly or in partnership with local and international forces.

CEOP helps keep children and young people safe from sexual abuse and grooming online. CEOP help thousands of children and young people every year, as well as their parents and carers.

CEOP are here to help and give you advice, and you can make a report directly to us if something has happened to your child online which has made either you or your child feel unsafe, scared or worried. This might be from someone they know in real life, or someone they have only ever met online.

If you make a report to CEOP it will be read by a  Child Protection Advisors who will get in contact with you on the phone number or email address that you give to us to talk about what you have reported, to make sure your child is safe and discuss what will happen next. Please try not to worry, your child has done nothing wrong and CEOP will do all they can to help.

CEOP will work together with you and lots of other professionals whose jobs are also to make sure your child is safe, this includes other police agencies.  If a crime has been committed CEOP will work together and use specialist skills to identify the person or people responsible and bring them into the criminal justice system.

If you're worried about your child being bullied online, or want to discuss a concern right now, you can call the NSPCC helpline for parents and professionals at any time on 0808 800 5000, or visit their website.
