Figures on the number of police officers involved in the monitoring and investigation of child sex crimes online are not centrally held by the Home Office.

However, the Home Office does collect statistics on the number of police officers employed within the Child/Sex/Domestic/Missing function. The table provided shows the number and proportion of full-time equivalent police

officers within the Child/Sex/Domestic/Missing function in England and Wales, as at 31 March 2010 to 31 March 2014.

The deployment of police resources is a matter for operational police leaders, working with Police and Crime Commissioners.
