Project Safe Childhood (PSC), is a Department of Justice initiative designed to protect children from online exploitation and abuse.
As technology advances and as the Internet becomes more accessible, the number of computer-facilitated sexual exploitation crimes committed against children - including child pornography offenses and enticement crimes - is expected to continue to grow. Introduced in February 2006, the goal of Project Safe Childhood is to enhance the national response to this growing threat to America's youth.
As part of the Project Safe Childhood program, the U.S. Attorneys Office has partnered with Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC), a national network of 46 regional task forces funded by the Department's Office of Justice Programs, as well as other federal, state and local law enforcement officials in our community to better integrate law enforcement efforts in the investigation and prosecution of child exploitation cases, as well as identifying and rescuing victims.
