Provincial police have charged a 34-year-old Windsor man with three child pornography-related offences.

OPP say officers searched a home in the city on Monday — following a four-month investigation — recovering two electronic devices containing images of child sexual abuse. 

The accused is charged with two counts of possession of child pornography and one count of making it available. 

Detective Sgt. Jeremy Spence, with the child sexual exploitation unit, called it a "proactive" investigation and the search warrant confirmed the information gathered over four months.

"The internet can be a safe place, but it can also be a bad place," said Spence. 

Spence said tips come to the OPP from the U.S. Centre for Child Exploitation, as well as internet providers and social media networks.

"We are all over the province," said Spence. "It's everywhere. There's no one bad place. And it's not stopping."
