New tool to battle online sexual predators

Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Bill Mason, Chair of the Ohio ICAC Task Force, unveiled the newest tool to battle Internet predators, a state of the art mobile forensic lab.

The ICAC forensic lab is the first of its kind in the State of Ohio.

The Mobile Investigations Vehicle will aid in the investigation of online sexual predators, and child pornography trading and downloading.

Prosecutor Bill Mason stated, "The mobile forensic lab will bring state of the art technology to the doorsteps of the sexual predators."

Since the ICAC program's inception in 1998, more than 338,000 law enforcement officers, prosecutors, and other professionals have been trained in the United States and in 17 countries on techniques to investigative and prosecute ICAC related cases and ICAC Task Forces have reviewed more than 280,000 complaints of alleged child sexual victimization resulting in the arrest of more than 30,000 individuals.
