Young people are being reminded how they can help keep themselves safe online by a regional partnership which raises awareness of child sexual exploitation.
People are being urged to unite against child sexual exploitation (CSE) and make a personal pledge to help tackle the abuse.
Police forces across the region are warning those who view sexually explicit images of children that they will be caught.
The warning comes after officers from Staffordshire, Warwickshire, West Mercia and West Midlands were out this morning (8 December 2017) targeting offenders as part of a successful day of action.
Advice on how to stay safe online is available from a regional partnership to raise awareness of child sexual exploitation.
The regional see me, hear me campaign is encouraging young people to make themselves aware of how to stay safe online and avoid risky or dangerous situations.
