Malicious cyber actors across the world target U.S. citizens, businesses, and military and government entities every day. They cause billions of dollars in losses, making cybercrime a growing threat for law enforcement.

Supported by BJA, the Law Enforcement Cyber Center serves as a central online resource to enhance the awareness, expand the education, and build the capacity of justice professionals toward the global goal of combating high tech crimes.

Additionally, through programs such as OJJDP's Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force Program, OJP is working to help agencies develop effective response to online crimes against children, including technology-facilitated child sexual exploitation.

During National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (October), access the Internet Safety Special Feature for topical information and resources from OJP and other federal sources.
