Ron H. (aka Sherlock) here. In light of the recent and tragic loss of ACPO’s founder & leader, I’d like to assure everyone that every effort is being made to see that ACPO lives on and continues to be a viable leader in the fight and report the unsavory and illegal behavior on the Internet. This was Natasha’s mission; this became Natasha’s life.
The current leaders of ACPO are very capable individuals who are working hand-in-hand to see that Natasha’s hard work is not forgotten.
Natasha, perhaps better than most, knew the pitfalls of the Internet and how susceptible children are on the Internet. She was aware of how Internet predators, and to a greater extent, child pornographers could hide behind their computer displays. Natasha influenced people both here and abroad and was a true hero and expert at what she did and how she did it; all within the confines of the legal system.
I recent talks with Natasha, she and I spoke of the future of ACPO, with the resounding theme being “please make sure that ACPO lives in my absence”. That is a promise I made and one that the rank and file will strive to obtain.
May Natasha Rest In Peace and her memory live on through the eyes and efforts of her many co-workers and people around the world. She will be missed, but we can all take solace that this world is a bit better because of her. We miss you Tashie.
