In Jacksonville, Florida and other cities throughout the United States, child pornography is an ongoing problem. It is most unfortunate that some people who promote or possess such pornography of children are those in positions of trust like the clergy, teachers, coaches, day care workers, and, yes, even the police. A former Atlantic Beach (Jacksonville) Florida police officer (Christopher Crews) was sentenced to 13 months in prison after pleading guilty to criminal charges of having child pornography on his computer. After his arrest in 2007, Officer Crews was fired by the Atlantic Beach Police Department. A psychologist assessment during the proceedings concluded that Officer Crews was a pedofile.
