CEOP button added to Northants Police Facebook page
ANYONE worried about child exploitation online can now register their concerns via a button on Northamptonshire Police's Facebook page.
The red CEOP button (Child Exploitation and Online Protection) is clearly visible on the page and was installed at the end of last week.
The installation co-incided with today's national news announcement of the Facebook link going live.
Supreintendent Tina Wetherall-Pegley, Head of Public Protection for Northamptonshire Police, said: "The safety of young people on social networking sites is paramount and this is a very important development on our Facebook site.
"We are committed to protecting the people of Northamptonshire but in this area young people are particularly vulnerable and this is a vital step forward."
Northamptonshire Police now has more than 1,000 'likes' on its Facebook page.
