Three suspects charged with child pornography offences

As part of Project Aquatic, the Windsor Police Service and Chatham-Kent Police Service have arrested and charged three individuals with child pornography-related offences.

Between February 26 and March 1, 2024, Windsor Police partnered with Chatham‐Kent Police to execute four search warrants in five locations across Windsor, Amherstburg, and Chatham. As a result, 23 electronic devices were seized and 15 charges were laid (11 by Windsor Police and four by Chatham-Kent Police).

“Child sexual exploitation is a terrible crime that can have lifelong impacts on victims,” said Windsor Police Inspector Andrew Randall. “Through initiatives like Project Aquatic, we are working hard to safeguard victims and hold predators accountable.”

Project Aquatic is part of the OPP-led Provincial Internet Child Exploitation Strategy, involving 27 police services across Ontario. In the months leading up to the operation, each agency developed its own targets, in response to reports made through, and file sharing services, and executed search warrants during the takedown week. Across Ontario, this year’s operation yielded 348 charges against 64 people.

OPP Newsroom.
