As outlined in the Department of Justice’s National Strategy for Child Exploitation Prevention and Interdiction (released in April 2016 and hereafter referred to as the National Strategy), “the global networking of child exploitation offenders and their increased technological sophistication present new challenges to the investigation and prosecution of child exploitation cases. In order to overcome this rising challenge, law enforcement must also increase its technological capabilities.” This National Strategy will be updated in 2019 and successful applicants will need to consider any new information or recommendations and incorporate into their deliverables, as appropriate. The goal of this program is to increase the technological investigative capacity and associated training of law enforcement, prosecutors, and other professionals. The program’s overall objective is to support the development, refinement, and advancement of widely used investigative tools, methods, and technologies that address child pornography, exploitation, and sex trafficking. To be aligned with the investigation and prosecution objectives outlined in the National Strategy, these proposed projects should target emerging technologies, offender organizations, and high-value individual offenders; and enhance international collaboration.

To achieve this overall objective, it is expected that the successful applicant will address the following in the program narrative:

  • Outline and describe the proposed investigative tool, method, or technology.
  • Identify the gaps or planned improvements in existing investigative tools, methods, and technologies that the proposed product will address.
  • Demonstrate that they have consulted with criminal justice agencies to gain a fuller understanding of any challenges and the operational context within which these tools would be employed.
  • Indicate how the proposed product will target emerging technologies, target offender organizations, target high-value individual offenders, better identify victims or enhance international collaboration.
  • Develop a timeline/workplan for the development, refinement, and advancement of the proposed investigative tool, method, or technology.
  • Submit a plan for how the proposed product will be marketed and made available to law enforcement, prosecutors, and other professionals.
  • Include a sustainability plan for the proposed product.
