Police Practice and Research continues to lead the discourse in presenting current and innovative police research by presenting this special issue on cybercrime. It contributes to the essential policing discourse by focusing on the understanding of, responses to, and prevention of cybercrime. PPR has had a strong history of contributing to the discourse of cybercrime from a global perspective. From 2002 to present, Police Practice and Research has published seven innovative police research and practice papers. These papers have explored cybercrimes, implemented in several countries, including US, Canada, Europe (UK). They have given particular focus to the three following areas: 1. Cybercrime relating to serious fraud and organized crime (Shelley & Picarelli, 2002), illegal Gambling (McMullan & Perrier, 2007), along with relevant strategies and prevention programs. 2. Sexual abuse, harassment and child pornography in cyberspace (Davidson & Martellozzo, 2008), cyber-bullying (Kyung-Shick, Cronin & Correia, 2016) and how we can protect vulnerable and young people from sexual abuse in cyberspace, including raising awareness and responding globally. 3. The challenges police forces face in digital forensics to prevent and punish cybercrimes (Vincze, 2016; Wall, 2007) and preventing criminalization effects (Tomblin & Jenion, 2016; Wall, 2007). The papers published in Police Practice and Research have highlighted several cybercrime issues and strategies/best practices to prevent and manage cybercrimes.
