UPDATE - School teachers and sports coaches were among 48 people interviewed by police in a crackdown on child pornography and abuse over the last two days.
The sting, codenamed Operation Tercel, resulted in 19 arrests and the seizure of 113 computers after police acted on information received from overseas enforcement agencies.
The arrests come just two weeks after Time Magazine questioned if New Zealand was becoming a "haven for paedophiles", alleging the country had failed to act on information from the United States.
Breakdown of areas the arrests were made is as follows:
Bay of Plenty 4
Hawkes Bay 3
Wellington (region) 8
