International Centre for Missing and Exploited Children Australia Ltd


Capacity & Prevention Coordinator

About ICMEC Australia 

The use of online tools and platforms to facilitate child sexual exploitation (CSE) is one of the fastest growing crimes in the world. Tragically, it has been named one of the defining challenges of our time.

ICMEC Australia is focused on reducing and preventing CSE through increasing capability in the detection, reporting and prosecution of the perpetrators of CSE, through data and technology solutions and collaboration. We work with financial services organisations, not-for-profits, regulators, technology innovators, and law enforcement, to assist their efforts in the fight against CSE.

We are a team with diverse skill sets and experiences bound together by our passion for removing children from harm. For more information on our mission and work please check our website.
