OVER 2000 PAEDOPHILES ARRESTED IN 3 MONTH LONG OPERATION

2,300 sex offenders have been arrested in a ‘Operation Broke Heart’ a operation aimed to clamp down on online sex offenders in America.


The American Justice Department made an announcement on Tuesday 12th June, announcing that they have made over 2,300 arrests nationwide on suspected online child sex offenders. The operation took the justice department and their partners over three months of hard work and dedication to make the operation a success.

Operation Broken Heart was headed up by the Internet Crimes Against Children task force and was designed to specifically target online sex offenders.

The global operation, which took place between March and May 2018, saw officers arrest 2,300 sex offenders who are thought to have been involved in creation, possessing and distributing child pornography. Some of the offenders are believed to have been actively involved in abusing children or approaching children for sexual purposes and have participated in child sex trafficking.

Among the offenders was a secret service employee who was residing in Maryland at the time of his arrest. No further details have been released about the employee at this time.

As part of the operation, which all 50 American States took part in, officers were involved with giving presentations to children in schools on internet safety and staying safe online.

Over 383 children were identified by officers as being victims of recent or historical sexual abuse.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who was in charge of giving the press release for Operation Broken Heart, noted how technology has facilitated and helped in the spread of child pornography. The Attorney General pointed out that over 25,200 online complaints have been investigated by the Department of Justice to date.
