Following graduation from the University of Kent in 2006, Helen joined the Education Team at the Child Exploitation and Online Protection centre (CEOP). Creating a range of resources (including films and written material) for young people, teachers and police officers, Helen delivered training across the UK and internationally to help protect children online. Additionally, Helen managed projects such as the development of resources for missing/runaway children and those with special needs or disabilities. Helen now works as part of a team in the Behavioural Analysis Unit at CEOP, advising police forces across the country about sex offender behaviour. Specifically Helen assists with the investigative process and interview strategy based on knowledge of victim and offender behaviour and the use of various profiling tools. As part of current research, Helen is interviewing child victims of sexual abuse and sex offenders.
