The Netherlands - Police are going to infiltrate child porn rings by offering pornographic pictures and films of children. A police spokesperson confirmed that the Council of Chief Superintendents is seeking to use all the special powers it has to crack down on child porn producers and users.

Paedophelia websites often require users to provide pornographic images before allowing them to enter the site. The spokesperson stressed that all such operations are conducted after consultations with the public prosecutor's office.

Police will also increase its efforts to improve the way it registers and stores all pornographic images it finds on sites and seizes during raids. All stills, clips and movies will be stored at a central facility and exchanged with other departments.

This should help police detectives and justice agencies identify and track both offenders and victims.

In an agreement reached in September 2008 with the justice ministry, internet providers pledged to help trace and block child porn sites.

A national hotline for the prevention of child porn, which works together with the police, receives some 6,000 calls per year. Around 200 of these cases are referred to the police, with half of these resulting in prosecution.
