About Thinkuknow

 

Thinkuknow is an education programme from the National Crime Agency’s CEOP command.

 

Since 2006, Thinkuknow has been keeping children and young people safe by providing education about sexual abuse and sexual exploitation. Thinkuknow is unique. It is underpinned by the latest intelligence about child sex offending from CEOP Command.

 

Thinkuknow aims to ensure that everyone has access to this practical information – children, young people, their parents and carers and the professionals who work with them. Alongside the Thinkuknow website the programme provides educational resources, including films, cartoons and lesson plans, to help professionals raise young people’s awareness

 

 

 

CEOP Command

 

CEOP is a command of the National Crime Agency and works to pursue and prosecute child sex offenders.

CEOP works with child protection partners across the UK and overseas to identify the main threats to children and coordinates activity against these threats to bring offenders to account. We protect children from harm online and offline, directly through NCA led operations and in partnership with local and international agencies.

Child protection is at the heart of everything we do and our approach is holistic. Law enforcement officers in CEOP and across the NCA work side by side with professionals from the wider child protection community and industry.

The lifeblood of the CEOP Command is intelligence - how offenders operate and think, how children and young people behave and how technological advances are developing - all are integral to what we are about and what we deliver.
