Frequently Asked Questions
For such a serious, rising epidemic online of sexual abuse towards our children we often get asked many important questions. We are dedicated to making sure we provide as much information as possible to the public. Please therefore take a look. If you have a question not listed here, please contact us. If appropriate to share with the public we will post your question with our response and advice. JFTI - Paedophile Hunters - UK

How do you find paedophiles online?
The case is that we DO NOT find the Paedophiles Online. Our Decoy accounts are spread across a wide online platform including social media, games and apps online. Our Decoys wait to be approached by the predator at all times. This ensures entrapment is NOT the case and evidence can and will be used in court to support a conviction. As always, we ask parents to check their children's devices, games and apps in particular, as they are not safe if they have 'chat' facilities. Limit your child's exposure time online and always check in on them. Always use the highest level of security that your internet provider has, i.e 'Sky Shield' which is excellent. If you're concerned at all, always dial 999 in emergencies, 101 or you can contact us here directly with information on a predator known to be communicating with a child.
How do you ensure the safety of all involved during a sting?
Every sting is always lead by our JFTI Leader/Founder or other trusted teams across the UK on our behalf. Teams always have security during a sting for back up in case needed. Stings are recorded to provide extra safety and evidence. Our aim is for a safe, calm talk with the predator about their offences with the object of getting an admission. We have a zero tolerance approach to violence. The entire point of our cause is to reduce abuse, therefore we are not set out to cause any harm to the predator. In fact, our presence and security back up is there to ensure the predator's safety as well as our own. Sometimes, unfortunately, but very unlikely, a predator may panic and react violently. In this situation, we simply will use reasonable, well trained force to restrain the predator until the Police arrive at the scene to assume responsibility for them. This follows our current Public Arrest Law Section 24A. Our procedures are always in line with the law and are updated as and when the law requires us to do so.
can the police do the stings?
Unfortunately at the moment our Police Forces are restricted by their own lack of resources and funding. Too many cases of evidences presented to the Police first get filed and we do not hear any updates. Our forces are reactive to crime rather than preventative. This has been the case in the UK for many years. However, we work with the Police closely and we hope that things can change here. If our Police accepted our evidence and plan to sting beforehand then we could certainly practice this, but as it stands this is not the case. Therefore, the only way under this REACTIVE approach by our Forces, to ensure an immediate arrest takes place, is to Sting the Predator with Police back up called to the scene where the Police can arrest straight away due to the admission already collected. The Police can then make sure the evidence and admission goes to court for a hearing straight away.
How many predators have you caught?
To date and with the support of other excellent hunting teams we have now caught over 52+ predators across the UK since 2017. This almost equates to one predator a week.
Are you a charity? Can I donate funds to support your organisation?
We are currently working on expanding our Child Protection Organisation to charity status. Supporters will soon be able to offer donations or purchase products creating an awareness and promoting online safety. Percentages of proceeds collected will go to NSPCC as our chosen charity as well as to our own organisation to ensure we can grow, expand both our cases, teams and education sector. We hope to be able to provide seminars to local schools/students and parents on the dangers of ONLINE Abuse and how we can keep as many children as safe as possible. With a 700% increase in online sex abuse crimes, action needs to happen now. Whilst our Government pledge financial support and ask for Internet Giants to have a zero tolerance approach to online sexual abuse, it's simply not making a difference fast enough.
What happens after a sting?
Our Sting Leader will attend the Police Station if necessary afterwards to carry out a full MG11 where a statement of the sting and the case including the research/evidence collected is carried out. Our team members work voluntarily, giving up many of their own hours before, during and after a sting to reduce sexual crimes against our children. The predator is arrested, usually bailed pending further investigation whilst awaiting a court hearing date where they will then be sentenced/convicted.
