Child porn dealer adopted child thanks to police inaction

THE NSW Police Force failed to arrest a man for distributing child abuse material, despite being sent a brief of evidence in August 2013 by the Queensland Crime and Corruption Commission (CCC).

It took a second CCC referral more than one year later, in October 2014, for NSW police to arrest the man on November 3 of that year.

The delay allowed the man, who cannot be named, to formally adopt a young foster child in his care two weeks before his arrest.

NSW police chose not to notify the NSW Department of Family and Community Services (FACS) there was a child in the man's care.

The case led to a new FACS procedure regarding checks of prospective adoptive parents.
