Summary of police guidance on sexting

The NSPCC has published a summary of the College of Policing’s guidance for police in England and Wales responding to cases involving young people who are sexting. Key issues include: the Outcome 21 reporting code can be used to record that a crime has been committed, but that it is not in the public interest to conduct a criminal investigation.
