In response to today's ABC News ListMail heading that
*Police see gap in knowledge of online crime* ... maybe
link should get 'down and dirty' to help .au federal police.
Without (yet) the benefit of adequate net-offender profiles
link could consider how is/will the net be used by criminals?
With a trebled budget the Commissioner can probably afford
pro-activity and might appreciate suggestions for net research.
More research needs to examine how criminals. use the Internet, according
to Australian Federal Police Commissioner Mick Keelty.
Commissioner Keelty says not enough is known about how criminals use the
Internet and the extent of the problem..
"We need research into the profile of people who would use the Internet for
crime, particularly those who will prey upon young people using the
Internet," Commissioner Keelty said.
"We also need some work done on profiling paedophiles so that we have a
better understanding of where they can seek assistance."..
Commissioner Keelty says his force is now well-resourced to deal with the
fast growth in international crime.
He says the force's budget has trebled in the past three years and agents
are ready to meet today's challenges.. "So we are very happy with the
resourcing we can get. You can always ask for more but we've been treated
very well by the Government."
Cheers all ..
