National Survey of Internet- and Technology-Facilitated Child Exploitation

“With this solicitation, NIJ seeks proposals for funding to conduct a national study of internet and technology-facilitated child sexual exploitation. The award recipient will be expected to develop, test, and administer a national data collection from law enforcement agencies to produce accurate and reliable national estimates of, information about, arrests for internet and technology-facilitated child sexual exploitation crimes. This study will allow for the identification of new threats, problems and concerns encountered by law enforcement in the changing technological environment; improved tracking and monitoring of new and abating threats; and a better understanding of which investigative strategies are associated with more favorable outcomes in protecting children from online victimization.” Full details can be found here.
