So guys as of now it’s been made a problem to step foot in to Yorkshire and do what we do. The West Yorkshire Police have sent a member of the dark light team a letter which subsequently means we could face prosecution Or possible arrest for carrying out any kind of activity in their divisions.
Let it be known that we do not entrap anybody or gain evidence illegally. We set out to do this to protect and safeguard children and while we have provided evidence to a number of police forces which have lead to convictions this is the first letter we have received telling us to stop our activitiesin exposing peadophiles.
WE WILL NEVER STOP AND WILL NOT TAKE THIS LETTER SERIOUSLY.
A crown court judge has already stated as members of the public we do not need to be regulated and therefore can Continue with our activities.

As you can imagine the team are frustrated at this after the scott jones sting. Scott lived in knottingley West Yorkshire and was a volunteer for an organisation of people who support vulnerable people including children and adults with learning difficulties.
Scott was speaking to 11, 12 and 13 year old decoys in a graphic nature. He has since been bailed by West Yorkshire Police pending further investigation.
The letter isn’t worth the paper it’s written on and a complete waste of ink. We do this for the children and we do this professionally. The police get roughly 27 million pounds per year to protect kids. We do this for free and are all volunteers. The whole hunting and decoy community work damn hard and don’t receive a penny for it. Our statistics speak for themselves.
We don’t want to ruffle feathers or make the police look stupid because they aren’t. They are however massively under resourced. Funding is getting cut everywhere and when we carry out stings it takes officers away from dealing with other serious crimes.
We get great service from officers on the ground and generally they are all in favour of what we do and the results we get. I was on the phone to a detective sergeant today who could do nothing but thank us and commend us on our work. The problem is never the officers who investigate. We provide them with intelligence they prove it is the suspect we hand to them. Without them we wouldn’t be able to get these people away from children and behind bars.
More to come soon.
