Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force

The Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force (ICAC) is a multi-agency task force dedicated to the fight against computer facilitated crimes against children. Task force investigators offer internet safety presentations to parents, teachers, various groups and members of the community.

The presentations are typically 2 hours long and help to educate the audience on the potential dangers the internet poses to our youth, as well as warning signs to look for and ways to prevent youth from becoming a victim of an online sexual predator.

To schedule a presentation, please contact Corporal Dan Johnson at 614-525-3318.
