Child grooming in society right now is at epidemic proportions. We are learning of case after case of countless children, lives shattered by predators. These predators can operate alone, or as part of an organized group, and all too often, due to the current strain upon police and other relevant authorities, they can ply their sick trade with impunity.
One of thevidence.otent weapons in the arsenal of the predator is the internet. With the anonymity afforded them online, groomers are free to target, manipulate and harm children in secret, with little risk of detection. This is where the decoy comes into play.
Decoys are adults who operate profiles with the appearance of someone of a groomers target demographic. They frequent sites, apps and services known to be hunting grounds for predators, and upon being contacted by a groomer, begin to gather evidence on them carefully, whilst ensuring not to lead or entrap them in any way. Often this will progress to a predator engineering a meeting with a decoy child, at which point the decoy is revealed to them as an adult, they are placed under citizens arrest and handed over to police, along with all accumulated evidence
