Using OJJDP funds, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation will continue its efforts to provide an effective statewide response to technology facilitated exploitation of children in Georgia. This will be accomplished by not only expanding the investigatory and forensic capabilities of the Georgia Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force, but by strengthening its community outreach capabilities as well. More specifically, the Georgia ICAC will continue to promote its website (http://www.familyinternet.info) to provide a mechanism where requests for Internet Safety programs, developed by the Internet Safety Coordinator, can be made. The resulting programs will then be stored on the website and be made available to community groups and school groups, as well as other civic forums. Finally, the Georgia ICAC Task Force will work to develop a web site that would allow affiliate agencies to report their statistical information in order to streamline their reporting to OJJDP, as well as receive information on ICAC events occurring in Georgia.
