The International Criminal Police Organization (INTERPOL) is urging the Caribbean and other developing nations to maximize the use of its tools and services to fight crimes against children.



In a report, INTERPOL said crimes against children “tend to be local crimes with the vast majority taking place within the home or family circle”.



It, however, said there is an “international angle”, pointing out that Internet crimes against children are “facilitated by the Internet", the increased use of which in recent years has led to a huge rise in offences.
