Internet Crimes

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. 1 in 4 has been exposed to online pornography. Two-thirds of North Carolina households have a computer and almost half of the homes in North Carolina have Internet access.

The purpose of our Internet Crimes against Children is to:

intervene and stop individuals who use the Internet to entice a child to meet with them for sexual purposes; Investigate and prosecute those who possess, create, or distribute child pornography; and Educate the public about the dangers that exist for minors on the Internet.
