The Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force is now on its third grant from the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention. We continue to work with thirty other local and state law enforcement agencies across the United States, as well as partner with Federal agencies. We also work with agencies in our community in prevention and intervention of these types of crimes. This past year, we investigated over 190 cases, with 16 arrests and convictions and 8 cases pending court hearings. We have conducted 35 presentations to schools, PTA's, and other civic groups. We have also spent some 400 hours of training for law enforcement, probation and parole.

Strike Force is a unit of the Knoxville Police Department dedicated to protecting children online. The unit uses operational tactics to investigate, solve, and prosecute online exploitation of children. Educational initiatives are provided to aid in the prevention of online crimes.
