Internet Crimes Against Children Unit

Since 2005, the Leon County Sheriff’s Office has been an affiliate agency of the North Florida ICAC Task Force (NFITF), which is comprised of investigators from 36 Florida counties stretching from Brevard County to Escambia County.  The NFITF is one of three such task forces in Florida.

The mission of the ICAC Task Force is to protect the children in our community from becoming victims of child sexual predators.  ICAC investigations employ various undercover techniques to detect and apprehend child sexual predators. 

ICAC investigators endeavor to educate parents, teachers, prosecutors, law enforcement, and other individuals and groups about crimes committed against our most precious citizens and what they can do to help prevent such heinous crimes.   

Under Florida law, e-mail addresses are public records. If you do not want your e-mail address released in response to a public records request, do not send electronic mail to this entity. Instead, contact this office by phone or in writing.
