Expert on child sex abuse to meet with police

Advertiser Staff

Police and prosecutors will be getting some help today in their fight against child sexual abuse, particularly against internet predators.

Brad Russ of the Internet Crimes Against Children Training and Technical Assistance Program in Durham, N.H., is in town to discuss how the state can improve response to cases of child sexual abuse.

The ICAC Task Force Program helps state and local law enforcement agencies develop responses to cyber enticement and child pornography cases.

According to its Web site, some of the help the ICAC offers states include forensic and investigative components, training and technical assistance, victim services, and community education.

The 11:30 a.m. meeting will be in front of the Honolulu Police Department Headquarters and 801 S. Beretania St.
