Internet Crimes Against Children

The Murray City Police Department participates in the Utah Attorney General’s ICAC Task Force.

The Internet is the most powerful information tool ever created and can enhance a child's education like no other resource. However, its very nature creates the potential for danger.

A recent survey revealed that 1 in 5 teens has received an unwanted online request to engage in sexual activities or provide sexual information. One in 4 has been exposed to online pornography.

Two-thirds of Utah households have a computer-more than any other state in the country. Almost half of the homes in Utah have Internet access.

What is ICAC?

The Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force (ICAC) is a multi-jurisdictional task force that investigates and prosecutes individuals who use the Internet to exploit children.

The task force is funded by a grant from the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention and administered through the Utah Attorney General's Office.
