Hotline for reporting child porn sites

The Press 03/08/2009

A new tool in New Zealand’s fight against child pornography will be launched today. A hotline allowing internet users to report child pornography websites is available at www.childalert.org.nz. There has been “an alarming increase” in people viewing child porn sites, according to ECPAT New Zealand, an organisation that fights against child prostitution and pornography.

The Child Alert Hotline allows internet users to download software that helps authorities identify suspect sites. On noticing a suspect website, an internet user can pass it on with the click of a button. The address goes to the Child Alert Hotline office and then to the Department of Internal Affairs. ECPAT Child Alert director Alan Bell said New Zealanders needed to be more aware of the number of illegal sexual images online.
