Award Description: The Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force Program seeks to maintain and expand State and regional ICAC task forces to address technology-facilitated child exploitation. These task forces work collaborately as a national network of law enforcement and prosecutorial agencies that prevent, interdict and investigate Internet crimes against children. The program requires existing task forces to develop multijurisdictional, multiagency responses to such offenses by providing funding and other support to State and local law enfocement agencies as a means to help them acquire the necessary knowledge, personnel and equipment.
Project Description: The Michigan State Police is in the process of hiring staff for this program. Position descriptions along with statements of work have been created for the various positions required to perform services. In addition, documentation as required by the Michigan Department of Management and Budget has been completed and submitted for review and approval. Staff will be hired once authorized. With its current staff, the Michigan State Police continuously works to decrease backlogged digital forensic cases. However, with the assistance of this award, the Digital Evidence Section will be in a better position to proactively manage new cases submitted for investigations and forensics. Therefore, these newly created positions will allow existing full time staff to focus upon new and developing case work, while others focus upon completing older examinations and sumbitting them for prosecutorial review.
Jobs Summary: Not applicable until staff is hired. (Total jobs reported: 0)
Project Status: Not Started
