The Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force Program was created to help Federal, State, and local law enforcement agencies enhance their investigative response to offenders who use the Internet, online communication systems, or other computer technology to sexually exploit children. The program is currently composed of 61 regional Task Force agencies across the country and is funded by the United States Office Of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention. The Massachusetts State Police is the lead agency for the ICAC Task Force in Massachusetts. The Massachusetts ICAC Task Force provides training to law enforcement, investigative support, Internet safety awareness presentations to schools, parents, and public and private organizations. The Massachusetts ICAC Task Force also acts as the contact for the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) Cybertip line. The Massachusetts ICAC Task Force also provides computer forensic capabilities directed towards crimes against children through the Massachusetts State Police Digital Evidence & Multimedia Section.
