Our Mission

“To Promote Awareness, Education and Prevention of Crimes Against Children on 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.

The IIICACC Board is actively working on the development of a smooth and efficient system for offering live video conferencing capabilities for some future presentations where in-person meetings would be difficult or impractical. If, as expected, it is successful, presentations (including live video feeds) will also soon be available on both our website and Facebook page. This same technology is currently being used to conduct monthly Board meetings in lieu of physical attendance at our established meeting location. We look forward to offering this as an option for future presentations.

Visit our website to see our calendar for future community events and presentations. Contact us if you would like a presentation at your event, team meeting, school, church, community organization, or group. We are setting up virtual options for presentations.

We wish you all the best during these challenging times. Please help keep your children safe on the Internet.

Sincerely,
Your IICACC Board Members
