Child Protection: Law Enforcement

The safety and well-being of children are central to the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention’s (OJJDP’s) mission. OJJDP enhances the efforts of federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement and prosecutorial agencies who investigate cases of missing, abducted, and exploited children; ensure that victims receive trauma-informed care; and bring offenders to justice.

Each year, the Internet Crimes Against Children task forces lead a nationwide effort called Operation Broken Heart. The operation targets suspects who produce, distribute, receive, and possess child pornography; engage children online for sexual purposes; participate in the sex trafficking of children; and travel to other states or countries to sexually abuse children.
