Franklin County I.C.A.C. Task Force

The goal of the Franklin County I.C.A.C. Task Force is to aggressively investigate cases involving the online exploitation of children and child pornography. A multi-agency task force dedicated to the fight against computer facilitated crimes against children.

The Franklin County Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force was formed in 2009 and is comprised of investigators from the following agencies:

The task force is made up of (1) supervisor and (14) investigators. These officers investigate cases of online child enticement and the possession and/or distribution of child pornography on both a proactive and reactive basis. Since the formation of the task force, investigators have arrested over 450 sexual predators. Investigators work closely with both the Franklin County Prosecutor's Office and the United States Attorney's Office in the Southern District of Ohio.

Task force investigators offer internet safety presentations to parents, teachers, various groups and members of the community. The presentations are typically 2 hours long and help to educate the audience on the potential dangers the internet poses to our youth, as well as warning signs to look for and ways to prevent youth from becoming a victim of an online sexual predator.

To schedule a presentation, please contact Corporal Jeff Zech at 614-525-3448.
