Last Friday evening at around 10.30 pm, 18 children were put under custody. During operation ‘Captación de Menores’, the minors, which met in internet booths located on the Plaza de Armas of Cusco, the Avenida Arcopata and the Avenida Antonio Lorena, were caught by the staff of the commissariat PNP La Familia.

The police operation was run for boys, girls, young workers and minors that are out of their homes and in a moral state of abandonment, in order to prevent the increase of crimes of pedophilia, child pornography and other possible crimes.
