Internet Crime Unit
The Internet Crime Enforcement (ICE) Unit investigates web-based crimes including Fraud, threats, harassment, internet child luring, and possession/distribution of child pornography. The duties associated with investigating these types of crimes may include search warrants and forensic examination of computers and other storage devices seized by police that could contain evidence of a crime.
The ICE Unite is also responsible for promoting internet safety through presentations to community groups, schools and universities.
