The city of Richmond Police Department has been awarded $80,000 from the Southern Virginia Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. These are FY 09 Recovery Act Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force Program Grants pass-through funds originating in the U.S. Department of Justice. Forty thousand dollars will be used by RPD, with the remaining $40,000 to be passed-through to affiliate agencies

The mission of the Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force program is to assist state and local law enforcement agencies in developing an effective response to cyber enticement and child pornography cases. The Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) program is a national network of coordinated state and local task forces engaged in proactive investigations, forensic examinations, effective prosecutions and community education. The ICAC program was developed in response to the increasing number of children and teenagers using the Internet, the proliferation of child pornography, and the heightened online activity by predators searching for unsupervised contact with underage victims. By helping state and local law enforcement agencies develop effective and sustainable responses to online child victimization and child pornography, the ICAC program delivers national resources at the local level. In addition, the ICAC program believes that building partnerships will reduce child victimization, both in the United States and internationally.
