Project Safe Childhood

In May 2006, the Department of Justice announced Project Safe Childhood (PSC), an initiative to reduce the number of children victimized by sex crimes involving the Internet. PSC targets child pornography crimes and Internet enticement of children using a three-pronged approach.

    Encouraging collaboration between federal, state and local law enforcement and prosecutors to increase the number of cases investigated and prosecuted and to maximize the resources available for identifying and helping victims.

    Supporting training of law enforcement officers to increase their ability to investigate these technically and factually difficult cases.

    Encouraging public education and outreach, including Internet safety training for school-age children and their parents.

The United States Attorney for the Western District of Oklahoma has taken an aggressive stance toward the prosecution of child pornography and on-line exploitation cases. Working with the Oklahoma Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force (ICAC) and the FBI’s Innocent Images initiative, the U.S. Attorney’s office works closely with local, state and federal law enforcement officers and prosecutors to reduce Internet sex crimes against children.
