Georgia ICAC Task Force

Introduction to the
Georgia Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force

horizontal line

The purpose of the Georgia ICAC Task Force (Georgia ICAC) is to provide to the entire state a Unit dedicated to the prevention, investigation, and prosecution of crimes committed against children over the Internet. Georgia ICAC is funded with both federal and state dollars and works in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Juvenile Justice Delinquency Programs (OJJDP), the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) and fifty-nine (59) regional and state ICACs across the country. Through the Georgia CyberCrime Task Force (GCTF), Georgia ICAC has partnered with the FBI, the Secret Service and their Electronic Crime Task Force, Immigration Customs Enforcement (I.C.E.), the State Attorney General’s Office, the Georgia Technology Authority and many local law enforcement agencies and local prosecutor’s offices to share resources to combat crimes committed against children over the Internet and with computers.

Part of the Georgia ICAC mandate is to provide Internet Safety prevention programs for children and their parents. To accomplish this, the GBI/HTIU has been instrumental in develop Georgia's cybersafety effort, the Georgia Cybersafety Initiative (GaCSI), a multi-agency collaboration between the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, the Georgia Emergency Management Agency, the Georgia Department of Education, the Georgia Public Broadcasting Agency, the Georgia Tech Research Institute, and the DeKalb Public School System. The efforts of this collaboration will hopefully change the culture surrounding the use of today's technologies by our students in order for them to be safer online.

Internet crimes against children include possession, distribution or manufacturing of child pornography images on a computer or using the Internet to entice children for sexual or indecent purposes. NCMEC provides Georgia ICAC with Georgia cybertip leads that are filed on-line by citizens and Internet Service Providers (ISP) at www.missingkids.com.
