Florida website dedicated to fighting CyberCrime and supporting CyberSafety

Posted on April 21, 2009 at 10:24 AM

Welcome to,

 a Florida website dedicated to fighting CyberCrime and supporting CyberSafety. In today's world, internet child predators, child pornographers and other cyber criminals are exploiting our children and engaging in online solicitation. My top priority is protecting Floridians from CyberCrime and my Child Predator CyberCrime Unit (CPCU) is working to carry out that mission, arresting online predators and providing services to victims of child pornography.

According to the Federal Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force, one in seven children between the ages of ten and 17 have been sexually solicited online. Additionally, Florida ranks fourth in the nation in the volume of child pornography. Internet predators are a serious threat to the safety of our citizens, particularly our youth. We must do everything possible to protect our children from these predators.

Computer-facilitated crimes are not limited to child pornography or sexual solicitation. In 2007, Florida ranked fifth in the nation for identity theft with more than 19,000 victims. Today's tech-savvy criminals are using the internet and other computer resources to gain access to Floridians' most private information.

With an ever growing population of senior citizens in our state, extra caution must be taken to protect these Floridians who fall victim to many types of exploitation including internet-based fraud. We must remain vigilant in protecting our seniors and providing them with useful information so they are better able to protect themselves.

Whether we are protecting our children from internet predators, shielding individuals from identity theft or keeping our senior citizens safe from those who target them for fraud, your Attorney General's Office will remain diligent in our fight against cybercrime.



Message from the Office of the Attorney General

Parents and Guardians,

The safety of Florida?s citizens, especially our most vulnerable, is a top

priority of the Office of the Attorney General. It is for this purpose that

we are presenting a new tool that deals with the safety of our children.

SAFE STEPS is designed with parents in mind as they pursue their primary

responsibility of protecting the youngest members of their family.

Over the past year, we went into elementary schools throughout the state

to train children - as well as their parents - on child abduction prevention

strategies. They were introduced to the concept of a ?bad stranger? based

on a person?s actions instead of their appearance.

An important area where parents must be involved with their children

is the use of the Internet. It is not uncommon for young children to fall

prey to Internet predators who have the influence and the ability to lure

children into situations and circumstances that are harmful. News reports

have detailed instances where a child has been lured out of their home,

across state lines, and even across international borders.

SAFE STEPS can assist in minimizing the risks so that families will not

suffer a similar fate. This publication contains valuable information and

resources that may be of assistance to you and your children. We hope

you find this useful.

While children need a certain amount of privacy, they also need parental

involvement and supervision in their daily lives. The same general parenting skills

that apply to the ?real world? also apply online. By taking responsibility for your

children?s online computer use, you can greatly minimize potential risks of being
