The Provincial Strategy to Protect Children from Sexual Abuse and Exploitation on the Internet is comprised of the OPP Child Exploitation Section and 18 Municipal police services.

Officers from the Peel Regional Police Internet Child Exploitation Unit ( I.C.E. ), assisted by officers from the Special Victims Unit, have made three arrests as part of their partnered commitment to this strategy.

Jose Sobarzo – Hernandez, 21 years of age from Mississauga, has been charged with 2 counts of Distributing Child Pornography, and 1 count of Possessing Child Pornography. He appeared at the Ontario Court of Justice in Brampton on February 2, 2012, for a Bail Hearing.
