The Indiana Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force is a multiagency task force that investigates and prosecutes persons who use the internet to exploit or entice children sexually. The Indiana State Police oversees the Indiana ICAC Task Force, comprised of over 50 local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies.
Since the inception of the Indiana ICAC Task Force in 2005, there has been a significant increase in complaints concerning online sexual exploitation and enticement of children. In 2022, the Indiana ICAC received over 14,000 CyberTips from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC).
The Indiana ICAC Task Force encourages Hoosiers to report all online exploitation, solicitation, and enticement-type crimes against children to NCMEC. To report an active crime against your child involving the Internet or other electronic means, please contact your local Indiana law enforcement agency.
