Due to the travelling restrictions resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic the YTVC 2020 conference has been postponed to a date to be advised 2021.  

 

Building on the success of the past seven Youth, Technology and Virtual Communities (YTVC) Conferences, the Queensland Police Service State Crime Command’s Argos invites you to attend the 2021 YTVC Conference.

Recent advances in technology have not only provided unprecedented opportunities for child sex offenders to produce, supply and circulate child exploitation material, it has delivered unheralded access to children via social media.

“Prevent, Protect, Prosecute” continues as the theme for the 2021 conference focusing on ‘Recidivism’, providing attendees with the latest developments, strategies and solutions in the collaborative effort of combatting crimes against children.

The conference is aimed at practitioners in the fields of law enforcement, prosecution, education, child protective services, social work, children’s advocacy and therapy who work directly with child victims of crime.

During the conference, international and national presenters will explore the varied themes providing insight into the many aspects of child exploitation including:
    • Technology facilitated crimes against children
    • Prosecution of child sex offenders
    • The impact of social media relating to victim and offender psychology
    • Non-government agencies and industry perspectives
