‘Lolli’ exhibit sheds light on plight of child pornography victims

10,824 lollipops to be exact.

The hard candies represent the number of child pornography images detected online globally every 12 hours, by the Canadian Centre for Child Protection.

"In the offender community, the term 'lolli' is a very disturbing term that is one used to describe victims or child sexual abuse material," said the Centre's executive director, Lianna McDonald.

"More than 10,000 [victims] a day, we don't have the resources. The police can't do this alone," said Staff Sgt. Sharon Hanlon of the OPP Child Sexual Exploitation Unit. "So this relationship is incredibly important to us."

Hanlon adds that the exhibit shocks fellow officers as well.

"These are real people. You think of images of child sexual abuse not being real kids. These are real kids with real feelings, real rights, and real pain."

She adds that the program has allowed them to not only get an idea of the number of child pornography images online, but the behaviour of some of the users who distribute them.
