Predator Watch strives to stop online sexual exploitation at its roots by informing predators that undercover police officers are posing as children online, waiting to make arrests. In today’s age of Internet chat rooms, online forums and social networking sites, people are able to interact online more easily than ever before. These circumstances provide an ideal environment for predators to communicate with and victimize vulnerable children and youth. Coupled with an increased amount of personal information being shared online, the Internet makes for prime ground for predators to meet and manipulate young people.
