The Integrated Mobile Crisis Response Team (I.M.C.R.T.) is currently comprised of 9 full time personnel.  A team leader, 2 Psychiatric Nurses, 2 Social Programs Officers, 2 Youth and Child Clinicians and two Police officers, who provide coverage 7 days per week.

The objective of the Integrated Mobile Crisis Response Team is to combine front-line crisis response elements into a more efficient, responsive and interdisciplinary crisis response team that can attend to the full continuum of community crises irrespective of age, preponderance of addictions or mental health issues, or public safety concerns.

An Integrated partnership between police services, Child and Youth services, mental health and addiction services, promotes diversion from acute hospital resources, linkage to community service providers, and fulfill the requirements for a community-based mobile crisis response service.  This is one of the five core components of a crisis/emergency response network cited in British Columbia’s Mental Health Reform Best Practices for Crisis Response/Emergency Services.

On January 24, 2005, the fight against child pornography and child expolitation received a boost with the national launch of Cybertip.ca.  This site provides the public with information, education and resources as well as support and referral services, to help Canadians keep themselves and their families safe on the Internet.

WHAT IS CYBERTIP.CA?


Cybertip.ca is Canada's National Tipline for reporting the online sexual exploitation of children.  It is a centralized web portal for receiving and addressing reports from the public regarding child pornography, luring, child sex tourism, and children who are exploited through prostitution.  Cybertip.ca also provides the public with information, referrals and other resources to help Canadians keep their children safe while on the Internet.

Child Find Manitoba is credited with a leadership role in developing Cybertip.ca and this site is operated as one of the organization's core services.


CYBERTIP.CA'S MANDATE


As Canada's National tipline, Cybertip.ca's mandate is to protect children from online sexual exploitation by:

  • Receiving and analyzing tips from the public about potentially illegal material and activities regarding the online sexual exploitation of children, and referring leads to the appropriate law enforcement agency; and
  • Providing the public with information and other resources, as well as support and referral services to help Canadians keep themselves and their families' safe while on the Internet.

If you want to report a incident of internet child exploitation, you can contact your local police department, go to cybertip.ca, or call Toll Free: 1-866-658-9022.

The NCECC was established in 2003 as the law enforcement component of Canada's National Strategy to Protect Children from Sexual Exploitation on the Internet. The centre was created in response to the recognition that the Internet was being more frequently used to facilitate sexual exploitation crimes against children including the exchange of child sexual abuse images and child luring.

The mandate of the NCECC is to reduce the vulnerability of children to Internet-facilitated sexual exploitation by:

  • Identifying victimized children
  • Investigating and assisting in the prosecution of sexual offenders
  • Strengthening the capacity of municipal, territorial, provincial, federal and international police agencies through training and investigative support

The NCECC is Canada's contact point for files involving Canadian victims and suspects. The Centre provides a number of services to law enforcement, including the ability to respond immediately to a child at risk, the coordination of investigative files, expertise in victim identification techniques, management of multi-jurisdictional cases, operationally relevant research, and training specific to online child sexual exploitation investigations.

NCECC also manages and provides training for the Child Exploitation Tracking System (CETS), an intelligence tool that enhances information sharing among Canadian investigators.

Saanich Police and NCECC

Saanich Police is dedicated to safeguarding our children, and has supported NCECC with coordinated investigations and even with personnel. In August 2005, Cst. Arnold Guerin, one of our former Child Abuse Investigators, moved his family to Ottawa to take on a full-time role of combating child exploitation. Presently Cst. Guerin is the Technology Manager at the centre. He is the leading world expert on CETS and travels around the globe training police agencies.
