Cyber Crimes - Online Resources

Homeland Security Investigations's (HSI) Child Exploitation Investigations Unit maintains a close working relationship with the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children in the fight against child exploitation. One individual from the unit serves as a liaison with the center, and the unit helps disseminate information the center receives via its CyberTip Report to more than 60 countries across the globe.

HSI's Child Exploitation Investigations Unit wants you to know how to prevent and report instances of child exploitation. Our partners at the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children have created the NetSmartz educational outreach program to provide timely and useful information about how to stay safe online.
