In January 2021, NetClean published its Covid 19 Impact 2020 report, the sixth one in the NetClean Report series. The aim of the reports is to promote greater awareness of and more insight into child sexual abuse crimes; to contribute to effective ways of stopping the dissemination of child sexual abuse material; and, ultimately, to stop the sexual abuse of children. The data in the report is the result of two different enquiries.
Law Enforcement Survey – Covid-19 Impact on Child Sexual Abuse Crime
The law enforcement survey in the report looks at the effects on child sexual abuse crime following the COVID-19 pandemic during 2020. The data was collected from police officers across the globe who work on cases pertaining to child sexual abuse crime.
An Anonymous Survey – 470 police officers from 39 countries participated in the survey by filling out an online survey anonymously.
The report covers the following countries:
Afghanistan, Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, The Cayman Islands, Croatia, Cyprus, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, India, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Mexico, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Philippines, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, The United Kingdom, The United States, and International organisations (e.g. INTERPOL or Europol).
