What is Internet Police Department?
Once this very dangerous Internet Police Department infection reaches your computer, it blocks the entire system and displays a huge fake alert message that informs you about some illegal actions that you have made. Cyber criminals have created Internet Police Department mainly for stealing money from random users. This main idea of this infection is not to delete your personal documents and information, but to lock your computer. Once this action is completed, you are asked to pay the fine which is said to help you unlock your computer and avoid further problems connected with legal authorities.
However, if you agree to pay the fine you just simply obey for cyber criminals and lose twice. So, if your desktop is locked and you see a notification from Police department that claims you to pay particular amount of money for seeming crimes, don’t believe in it and better start its removal. Hurry up to delete Internet Police Department as fast as possible.

You are accused of viewing/storage and/or dissemination of banned pornography (child pornography/zoophilia/rape etc). You have violated World Declaration on non-proliferation of child pornography. You are accused of committing the crime envisaged by Article 161 of Commonwealth of Australia criminal law.’
