To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many (a) police officers and (b) other law enforcement personnel are employed on a full-time basis to investigate online paedophile offences. [121956]

Investigations which are believed to involve paedophile activity or images, whether committed on or off line, are normally investigated by paedophile units, child protection or investigation teams. The allocation of officers to these units is a matter for individual chief officers, and information as to the staffing of these units is not held centrally.
