‘Sexting’ is so prolific in the Cootamundra Local Area Command in south-western New South Wales, one family has left the district after an image of their daughter went viral.
Youth Liaison Officer, Senior Constable Joe Camilleri, said police have destroyed seven mobiles belonging to young people recently as they contained inappropriate pictures, while the destruction of a further three phones is being considered.
“We’ve sought some professional advice from our people in Sydney and they can only give a 95 per cent guarantee that those images are removed,” he said.
These kids aren’t intentionally wanting to create child porn, but because of their age, that’s exactly what they’ve done and there are predators out there who would love to get these images and when they do go online, as we all know, you cannot retrieve them.
