In September 1998, the U.S. Department of Justice began a national Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force program to counter the emerging threat of offenders using the Internet or other online technology to sexually exploit children. Under this program, regional ICAC task forces serve as sources of prevention, education and investigative expertise to provide assistance to parents, teachers, law enforcement and other professionals working on child victimization issues. Wisconsin's ICAC Task Force has been administered through the Wisconsin Department of Justice's Division of Criminal Investigation since its inception in the spring of 1999.
The Wisconsin ICAC Task Force is a national leader in fighting Internet crimes against children. The task force, comprised of Wisconsin Department of Justice personnel as well as police and sheriff’s departments around the state, is responsible for over 800 arrests since 2005.
