You can also report suspicion of child sexual exploitation to your local police, your ICAC Task Force or the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children's CyberTipline (www.cybertipline.com or 1–800–843–5678).
In response to the threat of computer-facilitated sexual exploitation crimes committed against children, the U.S. Department of Justice implemented the Project Safe Childhood initiative.
