About Us
The Arkansas Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force Program (ARICAC) responds to technology-facilitated child sexual exploitation and Internet crimes against children in cooperation with local and Federal law enforcement agencies. This support encompasses forensic and investigative components, training and technical assistance, victim services, prevention and community education.

Luring and Grooming

Predators utilize the Internet and social media applications to sexually exploit children.

Child Sexual Abuse Material (CSAM)

There is a growing trend in which predators utilize the Internet & social media to request, produce, and obtain illicit images of children. Child predators will often seek each other out and exchange illicit images and/or videos which depict child sexual exploitation.

Exposure and Endangerment

Child predators often create fake persona’s to communicate with youth for the purposes of sexual gratification and exploitation.
The Arkansas Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force is part of a national network of 61 coordinated task forces representing over 3,500 federal, state, and local law enforcement and prosecutorial agencies. ARICAC is continuously engaged in proactive and reactive investigations and prosecutions of persons involved in child abuse and exploitation involving the internet. ARICAC Task force will serve as an investigative resource for communities and agencies within the state of Arkansas.

National ICAC Task Force
The National ICAC Task Force Program was created to help State and local enforcement agencies enhance their investigative response to offenders who use the Internet, online communications systems, or other computer technology to sexually exploit children. The program is currently composed of 61 regional Task Force agencies and is funded by the United States Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention.
