Sussex and Surrey Police have worked closely together as part of national Operation Notarise to arrest people who use the internet to access indecent images of children.

Police arrested 24 people in Sussex. All arrests were for offences relating to the possession and/or sharing of indecent images of children.

In Sussex 332 computers and related items were seized. Thousands of other items such as books, magazines, DVDs and cassettes were seized. Forensic examination and further enquiries are continuing in each case.

Assistant Chief Constable Stuart Cundy of the Surrey and Sussex Specialist Crime Command said: “Working closely with the National Crime Agency we have identified and arrested those who use the internet to access indecent images of children.

“This operation aimed to protect children who are, or might be at risk of sexual exploitation.

“Those who access indecent images should know the internet is not anonymous and we will pursue you.”

13 children in Sussex were referred to Children’s Social Care, though no actual contact offences against children were discovered in the investigation
