Internet Crimes Against Children Unit
Attorney General Hector Balderas is committed to protecting children from cyber predators through his Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Unit. The ICAC Task Force is a multi-agency network of law enforcement personnel statewide whose mission is to locate, track, and capture Internet child sexual predators and Internet child pornographers.
The OAG ICAC Unit has a fully equipped computer lab specifically designed to provide forensic analysis to law enforcement agencies working ICAC cases and special criminal investigations.
Although it is a useful tool, the Internet can provide a cyber predator easy access to our children. ICAC’s public education efforts have provided Internet crime prevention training to citizens and youth at community meetings, schools, and colleges throughout the state. ICAC helps protect New Mexico’s children through education, investigation, and prosecution of sexual predators.
