Cyber Tipline

Wednesday, June 14, 2006

One of the most useful links you'll find in the sidebar is the Cyber Tipline. This is run by the National Center For Missing and Exploited Children in conjunction with the FBI, the Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, U.S. Secret Service, U.S. Postal Inspection Service, state and local law enforcement , and Internet Crimes Against Children Task Forces.

Their site contains a wealth of information regarding ways to combat child pornography and exploitation. Their tip line is 1-800-843-5678. This is a toll-free number available 24 hours, 7 days a week.

If you see something illegal on the net, please let them know as soon as possible.

We have been in contact with a member of their team. Their advice ties in closely to the advice given to Bushwack at the conference:

Speak up!
Once it is reported, it will be investigated
Be patient. Often they will spend months gathering evidence on these people to ensure a conviction.
