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.
