As the Officer in Charge of the Child Exploitation Section for the Toronto Police Service, Paul Gillespie made an impassioned plea to Bill Gates to tackle the problem of online child exploitation.
Together, the Toronto Police, the RCMP and Microsoft Canada created the Child Exploitation Tracking System (CETS): an intelligence database that helps law enforcement store, share and analyze large amounts of information.
CETS has helped arrest 240 suspects and rescue 138 victims of child pornography or sexual exploitation worldwide and broke up 3 international pedophile rings
CETS is now being used by law enforcement agencies in the U.K., Italy, Brazil and Indonesia.
Thirty Canadian police forces have adopted CETS technology
