ASACP provides an online hotline for web surfers and webmasters to report suspected child pornography.
Investigate reports and determine the ownership of suspected CP sites and forwards Red Flag reports to international government agencies and associations including the FBI and the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, and International Hotlines.
Notify ISPs and payment processors when their hosting and billing services are hijacked by CP operators.
