Ce réseau international lutte contre l'exploitation sexuelle des enfants, la pédopornographie et les enlèvements d'enfants dans le monde.

Le réseau "International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children", basé aux États-Unis, réunit les organisations de 29 pays. Sa mission vise à identifier les lacunes dans les systèmes de protection des mineurs à travers le monde et à fournir les outils logistiques permettant de les combler.

Cette ONG a notamment financé le développement du "GMCNgine" au bénéfice des ONG de son réseau. Le "GMCNgine"qui est un moteur de recherche doté d'un logiciel de reconnaissance faciale permettant d'identifier les images d'enfants disparus et de traquer la pédopornographie sur internet. Il permet également d'éditer des avis de disparition ciblés dans les encarts publicitaires (Google ads) des ordinateurs connectés à moins de 100 km à la ronde d'un lieu de disparition.

Étant membre de ce réseau international, nous sommes les seuls en Suisse à disposer de cet outil recourant aux dernières technologies.

Cantonal police

Cantonal police

Collaboration in the event of missing minors. The police guide parents to us for professional emotional care and to support their search endeavours.

In the event of disappearances, it is crucial to establish contact with the inspectors in charge of the investigation, in order to facilitate and consolidate the work of caring for families. It would be desirable for police to inform parents that they can receive support via the hotline. Like the police, we must be in the right place at the right time to accomplish our mission.

All the police forces in French-speaking Switzerland have welcomed this collaboration for the benefit of parents and children in distress, with the exception of the Canton of Geneva.

Our communication should currently be passed on by more than 1,500 police officers in the French-speaking region.
