According to current statistics, more than 77 million children regularly use the Internet. The Federal Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force says Florida ranks fourth in the nation in volume of child pornography. Nationally, one in seven children between the ages of ten and 17 have been solicited online by a sexual predator.
The Attorney General's Office prioritizes education and community outreach efforts to protect Florida's Children, including cybersafety program that is being presented to all middle and high school students in the state.
To combat the growing threat of cybercrimes against children in our state, the Attorney General's Child Predator CyberCrime Unit was established in 2005. This unit was transferred in the 2011 Legislative Session to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE).
