The Child Protection Research Program is a grant sponsored by the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, the Department of Justice and the Office of Justice Programs. The goal is to understand and improve the response to crimes against children by using technological means. This grant focuses on the ability to predict abusive behavior towards kids. It seeks to research and identify people being investigated for online child exploitation and the risk they pose to kids. Undercover operations identify hundreds of thousands of different internet provider addresses involved in child pornography every year. This grant continues to create the proper tools to identify the suspects and and rescue victims.
