New center for tracking child predators

A Bedford County task force that targets Internet child predators has opened a resource center to aid investigators across Virginia.

A dedication dedication ceremony was held Thursday for the Southern Virginia Internet Crimes Against Children task force’s new center in Forest. The 5,000-square-foot building will serve as the task force’s headquarters.

Bedford County Sheriff Mike Brown says the task force’s mission is to protect children from Internet crime.

The Bedford County Sheriff’s Office created the task force in 1998. It now consists of a supervisor, five investigators, an analyst and a forensic examiner and partners with 77 other law enforcement agencies in Virginia.
