The Virtual Global Taskforce (VGT) was created in 2003 as a direct response to lessons learned from investigations into on-line child abuse around the world. It is an international alliance of law enforcement agencies working together to make the Internet a safer place.

The mission of the Virtual Global Taskforce is:

  • to make the Internet a safer place;
  • to identify, locate and help children at risk; and
  • to hold perpetrators appropriately to account.

The Virtual Global Taskforce comprises the Australian High Tech Crime Centre, the National Crime Squad for England and Wales, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, the US Department of Homeland Security and Interpol. Jim Gamble, Deputy Director General of the National Crime Squad, is the current Chair.

The Virtual Global Taskforce delivers innovative crime prevention and crime reduction initiatives to prevent and deter individuals from committing on-line child abuse. On-line child abuse includes searching for, sharing and downloading images of children being physically and sexually abused and “grooming” children in, for example, chat rooms with the intention of committing sexual abuse both on and off-line. Details of current and future initiatives are published on this website.
