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.
