Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force National Training Program, Category 1: Entry Level and Core Training
This project provides training to the Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force program and affiliated federal, state, and local law enforcement and prosecutorial agencies in the investigative training focused on combatting technology-facilitated crimes against children.
The project seeks to increase awareness and knowledge of the complex issues confronting families served by juvenile and family court systems and the impact prior adverse experiences can have on families over the life-course and across generations. Training and technical assistance (TTA) will provide judges and court personnel with a wide range of skills to address the diverse and unique needs of families that experience child abuse and neglect, domestic violence, and domestic child sex trafficking.
Through this new initiative, the National Children’s Alliance (NCA) will continue efforts to increase the number of children served in all jurisdictions across the U.S. NCA accomplished this through project planning and the implementation of targeted training and technical assistance using State Chapters as key stakeholders, facilitating communication among our members, linking multidisciplinary teams and child advocacy centers (CAC) to military services as we continue to support the implementation of our National Standards for Accreditation and endorsement of best practices.
