British police have offered assistance to their counterparts in Cambodia in the fight

against child sex offenders.

Officials with the British National Crime squad said the cooperation between Cambodia

in either country. British government officials recently established the Child Exploitation

and Online Protection Center to bring lawyers, charity organizations and law enforcement

officers together in the fight against sexual predators.
