The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention
 

The Department of Justice is committed to fighting against the sexual exploitation of children and a key part of that fight is acting together as a nation to protect our children.

   
The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) provides national leadership, coordination, and resources to prevent and respond to juvenile delinquency and victimization. OJJDP supports states and communities in their efforts to develop and implement effective and coordinated prevention and intervention programs and to improve the juvenile justice system so that it protects public safety, holds offenders accountable, and provides treatment and rehabilitative services tailored to the needs of juveniles and their families.
 
The Department of Justice is committed to fighting against the sexual exploitation of children and key part of that fight is acting together as a nation to protect our children. In addition, The PROTECT Our Children Act of 2008 provided for the development of a national strategy to combat child exploitation and established long-range goals for preventing child exploitation.
The ICAC Task Force Program (ICAC Program) does just that by bringing thousands of Federal, state and local investigators and prosecutors together to share information, investigate crimes, conduct training, and develop law enforcement technologies and techniques to interdict child exploitation. 
The ICAC Program is a national network of 61 Task Forces representing more than three thousand federal, state and local law enforcement agencies. These agencies are engaged in reactive, proactive, and forensic investigations and criminal prosecutions.

n January 1, 2012 a central registration system was implemented to track student enrollment for all participating ICAC training providers.  This new system provides the ability to report statistical data on all individuals trained through the ICAC Program.  In 2013, 3,661 law enforcement professionals were trained by the participating ICAC training providers.
The strong partnership forged by these two agencies provides superior training for law enforcement personnel.
