The purpose of the Task Force ( ) is to provide to the entire state a Unit dedicated to the prevention, investigation, and prosecution of crimes committed against children over the Internet. 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 s across the country. Through the CyberCrime Task Force (GCTF), 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 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 mandate is to provide Internet Safety prevention programs for children and their parents. To accomplish this, the GBI/HTIU has been instrumental in develop effort, the Cybersafety Initiative (GaCSI), a multi-agency collaboration between the Bureau of Investigation, the Emergency Management Agency, the Department of Education, the Public Broadcasting Agency, the 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 with cybertip leads that are filed on-line by citizens and Internet Service Providers (ISP) at www.missingkids.com.
