Greater Manchester Police Collaboration

In January 2019, the University of Manchester held a workshop in collaboration Greater Manchester Police to respond to the challenge of Online Child Sexual Exploitation (OCSE) from a digital security perspective. The meeting was attended by around 45 academics and practitioners from the various law enforcement agencies.

The delegates worked in multidisciplinary teams to respond to a variety of challenges and questions around the central theme of OCSE. The outputs from the workshop are confidential but include the creation of new projects addressing the theme, as well as the strengthening of the relationship between the agencies and the university.
