Senate ICAC Funding Bill Passes

Senate ICAC Funding Bill Passes

S.B. 1738 has passed in the Senate, authorizing the increase of federal funding of Internet Crimes Against Children Task Forces from $17 million annually to $60 million.  By 2015 the bill authorizes up to $100 million per year. This will help increase the ability of ICAC teams to investigate known child predators. Currently only 2% of known predators are being investigated due to lack of resources, while child sexual abuse image crimes are exploding year over year.
