Welcome to the Montana ICAC (Internet Crimes Against Children) Task Force website.


  • properly investigate and prosecute those who sexually exploit children through the use of the internet and/or computers;
  • provide training and equipment to those involved in investigating and prosecuting MTICACTF cases; and
  • provide community education regarding the prevention of internet crimes against children.

The Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force program is a nationwide initiative started in 1998 under the U.S. Department of Justice Office of Juvenile Justice Delinquency Prevention. By 2007, every state in the union had a funded ICAC task force program.

The ICAC program helps state and local law enforcement officials work together to educate the public, investigate cases and arrest those who use computers to prey upon and exploit children. ICAC also encourages law enforcement agencies to work with prosecutors on holding these criminals responsible for their actions.
