Who & Where We Are
The New York ICAC Task Force is made up of sworn law enforcement investigators, intelligence analysts, prosecutors and support staff from the New York State Police, New York State Attorney General’s Office and New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services. In recent years affiliate agencies have entered into agreements with the NYS ICAC Task Force. These partnerships greatly enhance the quality of service offered by the ICAC Task Force to law enforcement and the public.
The New York State Police Computer Crime Unit also provides invaluable support of our efforts to arrest those who use the Internet to prey on children. Located throughout the state, these State Police investigators are a resource that we use to ensure that investigations that take place anywhere in New York are completed as quickly and thoroughly as possible.
What We Do
The New York ICAC was created in 1998 through an ongoing Federal grant from the Office of Juvenile Justice & Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP). The ICAC Task Force Program has grown from ten task forces in 1998 to 61 today. The program ensures that participating State and local law enforcement agencies can acquire the necessary knowledge, equipment, and personnel resources to prevent, interdict, or investigate offenses against children. Under the program, ICAC Task Forces serve as regional sources of prevention, education, and investigative expertise to provide assistance to parents, teachers, law enforcement, and other professionals working on child victimization issues.
