Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Conference

Seattle Police Foundation funds supported the 2015 Northwest Regional ICAC Conference, providing highly specialized training for law enforcement investigators, digital forensic examiners, and prosecutors. The conference focused on technology-facilitated crimes against children and drew 189 attendees from Washington State, across the country and Canada.  It was multi-disciplinary with 39 presenters and 54 individual tracks offered.

The 2015 Northwest Regional ICAC Conference provided an invaluable forum where law enforcement, industry, and solution providers could meet, exchange perspectives and improve collaboration so they can continue their mutual goal of fighting against internet crimes against children.  This work proved to be so valuable, that 98% percent of attendees stated that they intend to return in 2016.
