Virtual Global Taskforce

The Virtual Global Taskforce (VGT) is an international alliance of 15 law enforcement agencies, affiliate non-government organisations and industry partners working together to protect children from online child sexual abuse.

The VGT was established in direct response to the rise in offenders targeting children online and travelling overseas to sexually exploit and abuse children.

The VGT is an independent body chaired by the National Crime Agency and includes the following dedicated international law enforcement agencies:

VGT members work together to deliver innovative, global strategies in response to online child sexual abuse.

The objectives of the VGT are:

  • to make the internet a safer place
  • to identify, locate and help children at risk
  • to hold perpetrators appropriately to account.

To achieve these objectives, the VGT delivers low-cost, high impact initiatives to prevent and deter paedophiles from exploiting children online.

The synergy of law enforcement, government, industry and the community is vital in keeping children safe.
