Numbers Now…. Criminal Justice in Oklahoma June 2013 (Vol. 3, No. 2) Published By Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation Stan Florence Director Charles Curtis Deputy Director Dave Page Division Director Information Services Christopher Hill, Ph.D. Assistant Division Director Information Services Angie Baker SAC Director Open Statistical Research Specialist Jennifer Powell Liaison OK Violent Death Reporting System In this issue: National Internet Safety Month Law Enforcement Program Spotlight: Internet Crimes Against Children The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation maintains a unit of personnel trained to investigate Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC). The unit investigates the exploitation of children by the use of technology. Agents also conduct undercover operations and respond to ICAC-related complaints. They do this by utilizing trained agents and computer equipment. The OSBI is the lead agency for the Oklahoma ICAC Task Force, which is part of the National ICAC Task Force. Funding is provided through the Department of Justice. Currently, ICAC partners with many agencies (including district attorneys’ offices, sheriffs’ departments, and municipal police departments) across Oklahoma to assist in the investigation and prosecution of these cases. According to Julie Kindle, Criminal Intelligence Analyst, minors’ involvement with social networking services (SNS) has risen by 96% within the last year. Harmful interactions that children encounter online include cyber bullying, coercion, pornography, drugs/alcohol, and violence. During the first two months of 2013, the ICAC Unit completed 47 investigations, served 53 search warrants, and made 16 arrests. Investigations included criminal activity related to child pornography, enticement, and obscenity directed to minors. There are many ways to keep your children safe online, including: Position the home computer in a way children cannot easily conceal what they are viewing; Instruct children to only communicate with people whom they know and trust; Instruct children not to post any personal information or pictures that identify schools attended, home addresses, friends, or family; Monitor your child’s browser history and downloaded files for suspicious content; and Install supplementary protection software to maximize security and protection. For more information about the ICAC Unit, please contact Agent-in-Charge Steve Tanner at firstname.lastname@example.org.
