Welcome to the Tennessee ICAC Task Force
The National Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force was created to help Federal, State and local law enforcement agencies enhance their investigative responses to offenders who use the Internet, online communication systems, or computer technology to sexually exploit children. The Program is funded by the United States Department of Justice, Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention.
The Tennessee ICAC Task Force is a partnership between city, county, and state law enforcement agencies from across Tennessee. These law enforcement agencies work hard to combat child exploitation through investigations into Internet Crimes against Children. Working in partnership through Project Safe Childhood with federal law enforcement agencies and local/federal prosecutors, child predators are brought to justice.
The ICAC program is a national network of 61 coordinated task forces representing over 3,500 federal, state, and local law enforcement and prosecutorial agencies. These agencies are engaged in both proactive and reactive investigations, forensic investigations, and criminal prosecutions. Since the ICAC program's inception in 1998, more than 500,000 law enforcement officers, prosecutors, and other professionals have been trained on techniques to investigative and prosecute ICAC related cases. ICAC Task Forces across the country have reviewed more than 580,000 complaints of alleged child sexual victimization resulting in the arrest of more than 60,000 individuals. The Knoxville Police Department formed an ICAC task force in 2000. They are the regional task force for the State of Tennessee, overseeing all other units in the state at a federal level.
