CourtTV Canada, the Canadian Policy Research Networks (CPRN), and the National Strategy on Community Safety and Crime Prevention have teamed up for a unique series of broadcast shorts with a companion web site geared to teaching users about crimes affecting youth and to gathering more information on the issue interactively. The project, called Crimebeat, has launched with a first segment on the youth sex trade, and will be followed by five more episodes over the next several weeks. When the project is complete, CPRN officials will compile and publish a discussion paper about the initiative.
