Australian Federal Police want a Facebook cop


The Australian Federal Police (AFP) are calling for Facebook to employ a law enforcement expert in Australia to overlook the Australian user-base of Facebook.

Last month, Nona Belomesoff of Sydney was murdered by a man she allegedly met of Facebook.

Several Governments around the world are holding a meeting to discuss the social media site and are then going to contact Facebook in regards to increased law enforcement and security on the site.

Assistant Commissioner Gaughan says has to be done about stalking, grooming and sharing of illegal information.

Gaughan adds he wants to see a dedicated law enforcement official for Australia, a ‘report abuse’ button on each Facebook profile and verification software to stop people under the age of 13 signing up.

Facebook says they already have a dedicated employee who holds up law enforcement requests from Australian government officials.

Facebook is looking to roll out new simplified privacy control tomorrow and the following days.
