Annotation: This looseleaf manual presents the agenda and course materials for a training program lasting 2.5 days and designed to provide law enforcement unit commanders with an understanding of the crucial management issues involved in the effective investigation, prosecution, intervention, and prevention of computer crimes against children.
Abstract: Individual modules of instruction focus on the nature of computer crimes against children, ways in which sex offenders use personal computers and the Internet to assist them in child sexual abuse and exploitation, and ways in which computer technology has changed how some crimes are committed and investigated. Additional modules explain computer networks and online communications, organizational and management concepts for the creation and oversight of programs designed to protect children online, and investigative techniques for cases of child exploitation. Further modules focus on privacy issues, search and seizure issues, legal exposure attendant with the investigation and prosecution of computer-assisted sexual exploitation of children, and resources for use in investigating computer crimes against children.
