Services-Police-Threats to share Nudes

The Police

If someone is causing you ‘serious emotional distress’ by threatening to share nude images or video of you,  you can make a complaint  to the police.

After finding out what has happened and discussing your options, the police will advise you about making a report.

What would happen next?

The Police can investigate the situation and if there is enough evidence, charge someone with an offence under the Harmful Digital Communications Act (or potentially under another Act)
