DCI'S INTERNET CRIMES AGAINST CHILDREN
TASK FORCE TO UNVEIL NEW WEB SITE TO
HELP PARENTS KEEP KIDS SAFE

Des Moines, IOWA --- In its ongoing effort to assist parents in protecting their children from online predators, tomorrow DCI’s Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force is launching a new website.  This web site will offer Iowans resources to aid in talking to children about risks of online communication, and how and when to report illicit material.  In addition, the Iowa Attorney General’s Office will be receiving the 2010 Outstanding Service Award from the ICAC Task Force for its continued public outreach and education, as well as its efforts to prosecute those men and women who use the anonymity of the internet to prey on our children.
