The analysts conduct research and analysis in order to identify individuals suspected of any of the following: possession, manufacture and/or distribution of child pornography; online enticement of children for sexual acts; child sexual tourism; and/or other sexual exploitation of children.
The analysts utilize various Internet tools and administrative subpoenas in their efforts to identify individuals who prey on children.
