Cypriot Policy on Sexual crime

Cyprus police operates in multi-level ways to prevent all kinds of sexual crime.  For the police in Cyprus, the main areas of concern in this context are: Child Pornography, Prostitution, Sexual assault, Rape, and Sexual abuse within the Family.

Continuous patrols and checks are carried out in high risk places while intelligence gathering / analysis enables targeted interventions.

Information brochures are being distributed to ensure prevention of victimisation in the areas of sexual assault (both children and adults) and rape, as well as sexual abuse in the family.

Child pornography measures are taken largely in collaboration with partner organisations with website information and media coverage.
