Operation Metro is a six month Police project which will operate in the Auckland Metropolitan area - between the Bombay
Hills and Orewa.
The project will specifically investigate the following areas of criminal activity.
Offenders in the community who sexually abuse children outside of the extended family/whanau.
The possession and/or distribution of child pornography in any format and particularly via the Internet.
Offenders who travel to other countries and engage in sexual activity with children and young people under the age of 16
The Operation Metro team, headed by Detective Sergeant Mark Churches, are very keen to hear from members of the public
who may have information which would assist in identifying persons engaged in the above criminal activity, and live in
the Auckland Metropolitan area. Information can be passed to the team in confidence and anonymously. All information
received from members of the public will be investigated.
THIS PROJECT IS ABOUT PROTECTING CHILDREN FROM ABUSE
IT IS EVERYONE'S RESPONSIBILITY - GIVE THEM THE PRIORITY THEY DESERVE
