The Windsor Police Service Internet Child Exploitation Unit recently participated in a Provincial Strategy designed to help highlight the concerns surrounding Internet Child Exploitation, and the ongoing efforts by investigators to enforce the law and protect children.

Numerous charges have been laid across Ontario, highlighting a snapshot of one month’s worth of work by Internet Child Exploitation Investigators that make up the Provincial Strategy to Protect Children from Sexual Abuse and Exploitation on the internet.

A total of 267 judicial authorizations were obtained, resulting in 551 charges against 122 people, including 11 youth who cannot be identified under terms of the Youth Criminal Justice Act.

In addition, 55 victims were identified during the investigations and referred to appropriate community-based resources for assistance. Police also seized a total of 17 firearms three of which were loaded handguns.

Locally, investigators were recently active in an investigation involving the suspected possession and distribution of child pornography.

Investigation identified a suspect and associated residence and on November 13th, they applied for and received judicial authorization to search a residence located in the 300 block of University Avenue East.

On November 14th at approximately 10:30am officers executed the search warrant and seized a number of computer and external electronic data storage devices. Officers located child pornography images and videos.

The suspect was later arrested at Headquarters without incident.

Investigation revealed that over a period of months the suspect was believed to have committed a number of offences.

Richard Dalkeith, a 40-year-old male from Windsor, is charged with three counts of possession of child pornography, three counts of accessing child pornography, and two counts of make available child pornography.

Investigators do not believe that any local children were involved in the offences.
