The South Florida Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force is a multi-agency and multi-jurisdictional task force that investigates and prosecutes offenders who use the Internet and other online communication systems to sexually exploit children. There are 61 regional ICAC Task Forces representing over 4,500 federal, state, and local law enforcement and prosecutorial agencies which are funded by the United States Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP).
The South Florida ICAC Task Force is one of three ICAC Task Forces here in the State of Florida and represents twelve counties in South Florida. The task force is managed by the Broward Sheriff’s Office and is made up of over 65 local, state and federal affiliate police agencies.
The ICAC program was developed in response to the increasing number of children and teenagers using the Internet, the proliferation of child pornography, and the heightened online activity by predators searching for contact with underage victims.
Not only does the South Florida ICAC Task Force focus on identifying, arresting and prosecuting offenders who victimize children online; task force affiliates also take a preventative approach to the problem by educating both parents and children of the potential risks and Internet/online Safety measures. We encourage everyone to access the links on this site for additional information and ask that you continue to call your local law enforcement agency to report any suspicious activity.
