Lincolnshire Police: 'There are no excuses' for viewing, taking or distributing child pornography
Lincolnshire Police has launched a campaign to tackle the growingproblem of people viewing and sharing indecent images of children under the age of 18.
The force is raising public awareness of that viewing sexual images of anyone under 18 is a serious crime and of the real harm caused to the children who appear in the images.
Officers will be highlighting the law and driving home the consequences of their behaviour to offenders – including arrest, imprisonment, break up of family, loss of job, loss of friends and being put on the sex offenders register. The force is also directing people who look at indecent images of children to confidential and anonymous help from the organisation Stop It Now.
