*excerpt: There may be 850,000 child sex offenders lurking in the UK, a new report claims. The number is three times higher than previously thought, but may still fall short of the true scale of the threat. In its annual National Strategic Assessment, the National Crime Agency (NCA) stated last year that there were 300,000 individuals in the UK who posed “a sexual threat to children.” While 35,000 were being managed by law enforcement, the remainder were active online, on the so-called ‘dark web’, the report elaborated. This year, the numbers have been revised upwards dramatically. Using a new methodology that the NCA claims better captures the number of sex offenders active online, the organization estimated that anythere between 550,000 and 850,000 offenders may be based in the UK. Of these potential threats, just under 75,000 have been “marked” by law enforcement. The NCA researchers said that their methodology should be treated with “moderate confidence.” If the upper estimate is correct, however, one in 77 people in the UK could pose a threat to children. Their offenses fill a broad spectrum, “from downloading and sharing indecent images of children to direct contact abuse,” the report reads. Yet the true scale of the problem may be even larger. The report notes that the final figure excludes “non-UK offenders targeting UK victims,” and “peer-on-peer” offenders, meaning minors who abuse other minors. https://www.rt.com/uk/524798-sex-offenders-increase-uk/
