“To Promote Education, Prevention and Successful Prosecution in Cases Involving Crimes Against Children over the Internet”
Internet crimes are often thought of as victimless. Nothing could be further from the truth. Children and teenagers can and do become victims of internet crimes.
PREDATORS CONTACT TEENAGERS AND CHILDREN OVER THE INTERNET AND VICTIMIZE THEM BY:
- Enticing them through online contact for the purpose of engaging them in sexual acts.
- Using the Internet for the productions, manufacture, and distribution of child pornography.
- Using the Internet to expose youth to child pornography and encourage them to exchange pornography.
