Procured by the Home Office from the UK Government G-Cloud framework the highly secure system will be made available to 46 UK police forces and law enforcement agencies. It provides a centralised national database containing millions of Child Abuse images that authorised officers can use to quickly differentiate between new and existing material improving their ability to identify and safeguard victims. The system includes tools for the analysis, grading and uploading of images.
