Child Sexual Exploitation

NCMEC Analyst

Child sexual exploitation is a significant problem requiring a multifaceted response. The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children® works with federal, state and local law enforcement in their efforts to investigate and prosecute these cases and identify and rescue child victims.

Through April 2015 NCMEC has:

  • Received and made available to law enforcement more than 4.3 million reports of suspected child sexual exploitation through the CyberTipline®.
  • Analyzed more than 139 million images and videos depicting apparent child pornography through the Child Victim Identification Program®.

NCMEC provides:

  • Assistance to law enforcement in their efforts to locate non-compliant sex offenders in the U.S through the Sex Offender Tracking Team®.
  • Analytical services to law enforcement in their investigations of child sex trafficking through the Child Sex Trafficking Team.

NCMEC is proud of the services provided to law enforcement investigating cases of child sexual exploitation, but understands there are many more child victims of sexual exploitation who have not yet been rescued and still suffer at the hands of their offenders. NCMEC will continue to work to help ensure all child victims receive the help they need and deserve.
