Kingston police are involved in an ongoing Internet Child Exploitation project to monitor file-sharing networks associated with child pornography.

Back in mid-October, police said a computer connected to a file-sharing network was matched to a Kingston IP address, and what police believed to be child pornography files were captured from the computer.

On Nov. 19, Kingston police received authority from a judge to identify the subscriber of the internet service and found that a Kingston address was listed.
