Abstract

The National Crime Agency recently reported the successful arrest of 660 “suspected paedophiles” who had accessed indecent images of children online, following a six-month investigation. The large volume of arrests revisits the discussion about how to reliably assess risk when it comes to individuals who view such pictures.
