Welcome to the website of the Ohio Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.
The Ohio Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force is a
federal anti-crime initiative funded by the U.S. Department of Justice’s Office
of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention. It is a collaboration of city,
county, state and federal law enforcement authorities across Ohio whose mission
is to identify, arrest and prosecute individuals who: (1) use the Internet to
lure minors into illicit sexual relationships; or (2) use the Internet to
produce, distribute or solicit child pornography.
Inside our site you will find important information that
can keep you, your family and your friends safe from the very real dangers of
Internet child sexual exploitation. We’ve included safety information for
parents and kids, information about our task force members and their work, an
list of completed and ongoing prosecutions, information and photographs of
convicted Internet sex offenders in Ohio, information on our school outreach and education
program, and links to sites where you can learn more about Internet safety.
We’ve also included a direct link to the
National Center for Missing
and Exploited Children (NCMEC) where you can immediately report suspected
online child sexual exploitation.
Please surf the Internet safely, and don’t hesitate to
contact us if we can be of further help.
