SET Training - "The impact of COVID on Online Exploitation"
On Thursday 1st July 9.30am-12.30pm partners across Southend, Essex and Thurrock are invited to attend a workshop thinking about online exploitation in Essex, the impact of COVID locally and how to explore this issue with children.
In this workshop we will hear from ‘The 2 Johns’ (E-Safety Training) and Essex Police.
‘The 2 Johns’ will tell us;
- How life online has changed for children over the past year
- How methods of exploiting children online have changed
- How should we discuss this with children
- A chance to ask ‘The 2 Johns’ questions
DCI David Browning from Essex Police will tell us;
- How Essex Police investigate online exploitation
- What are the trends they have seen over the past year
- Suspect profiles for those abusing children online
- How can partners support the police in identifying online exploitation and the investigations police carry out
- How has COVID impacted on online exploitation in Essex and future predictions
We will also hear an overall summary about local online exploitation trends seen by partners in Southend, Essex and Thurrock.
This is a chance to come together across SET and reflect on how COVID has impacted on online activity by children and how exploitation has adapted online, on a local level. The workshop will be followed up with further workshops on practitioner tools for assessing and intervening with online exploitation, including a workshop for MACE 2 (Essex), MACE (Thurrock) and the Child Exploitation and Missing Sub-Group (Southend) representatives to develop a local strategic response to this issue.
