Cyber Safety

Attorney General Cameron is committed to protecting all Kentuckians from online predators.​​The Cyber Crimes Unit, a branch of the Department of Criminal Investigations, is devoted to getting child predators offline and off the streets. Investigators from this unit concentrate their undercover investigation efforts on reducing child pornography online and catching adults soliciting minor children online for sex. The office's Special Prosecutions Unit then goes to work, prosecuting many of these cases and ensuring child predators go to jail and are placed on the Sex Offender Registry. Then, the Office of Criminal Appeals defends these convictions, making sure the dangerous predators stay behind bars.

Online Safety

The Cyber Crimes Unit makes it a priority to educate parents, children, prosecutors, and law enforcement on the dangers lurking behind the internet.

The Office of the Attorney General has also partnered with Prevent Child Abuse Kentucky to offer statewide trainings for parents and caregivers on how to keep kids safe online. The trainings offer a free Internet Safety Toolkit, which provides helpful information about how to protect children from cyber bullying and online predators. To learn more about current and upcoming child protection training opportunities in your community, visit our Child Sexual Abuse Prevention Trainings page.
