Dear Ms Joy

 

I refer to your request concerning statistics for online child grooming
cases in Australia, please note the AFP does not hold statistics for State
and Territory police and you should seek that information separately from
those jurisdictions.  The AFP will provide the statistics for AFP cases,
however, I would be grateful if you would advise a time period for the
statistics you seek, for example 2016/17 FY?

 

Once we receive that information we will continue processing your request.

 

Regards
