Policing Child Pornography

The Department of Internal Affairs seems to have morphed into Department of Policing Child Pornography. Here's yet another press release from them today celebrating a successful prosecution. Do they do anything else? I checked out their recent press releases and found that 10 of the last 14 have been about this particular subject.

So I went back to the same months in 2004 and found quite a different emphasis or variation of press releases.

The department increasingly seems to be the morals police. And I don't really understand why this department is responsible for what is surely a matter of law and order?

I understand this is largely because the DIA started out providing technical assistance to the Police on internet issues waaaay back in the day (1994 I think). The Department just morphed from there.
