SEX­TING is send­ing provoca­tive or sex­ual pho­tos, mes­sages or videos. It gen­er­ally hap­pens us­ing a mobile phone or by post­ing ma­te­rial online. Sex­ting is a com­mon oc­cur­rence be­tween chil­dren. En­gag­ing in this ac­tiv­ity can re­sult in se­ri­ous sex­ual of­fences be­ing com­mit­ted by all par­ties. The re­sult may be a crim­i­nal con­vic­tion or be­ing reg­is­tered as a se­ri­ous sex­ual of­fender. This will have an im­pact on fu­ture em­ploy­ment, travel and re­la­tion­ships. A sim­ple act can re­sult in a life­time of shame. - Se­nior Sergeant Stephen Thomp­son
