Cambs Police Sexting Campaign
1st February 2017
In a new campaign, Cambridgeshire Police are highlighting their concerns around Sexting with a number of posters aimed at young people, teenagers and parents.
SEXTING is the exchange of self generated sexually explicit images, through mobile picture messaging or webcams over the internet.
‘Sexting is illegal’ i.e. possessing an indecent image of a child, even if you are a child yourself. Apps such as Snapchat and Instagram make this much easier than it ever used to be. Many believe these pictures exist for a few seconds then are gone forever.
By giving and reinforcing the right messages from a really young age, we can help prepare children for the risks and dangers they might face along the way
