$2.5M grants to enhance child exploitation investigations by police


By Andrea Fox, EfficientGov.com

Up to $2.5 million in federal funding will be awarded to support the development and advancement of investigative technology tools by local police and partner agencies to enhance child exploitation investigations.

Cities, towns, counties, tribal and state governments and non-profit or higher education partners can apply to increase the technological investigative capacity and implement training for law enforcement and prosecutorial agencies under the U.S. Department of Justice Office of Justice Programs’ Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention’s (OJJDP) Strengthening Investigative Tools and Technology for Combating Child Sexual Exploitation grant program.

The discretionary grant program is expected to make up to six awards and will focus on methods and technologies that address child pornography, exploitation and sex trafficking of minors.

Proposed approaches may include:

Developing new protocols for ascertaining the identity of child exploitation offenders using anonymization networks, in particular, Tor and Freenet. Targeting offenders who exploit children through webcams, including online enticement, sextortion and live-streaming of child sexual abuse. Exploring legal and technological tools to ensure access to evidence encrypted by offenders. Building forensic capacity and expertise to meet the challenges that mobile devices with built-in encryptions and cloud-based storage pose to online child exploitation investigations. Identifying gaps in existing tools and resources. Developing tools that use artificial intelligence to assist law enforcement in efficiently processing large amounts of investigatory leads. Developing new software programs or investigative tools to fill the gaps; increase capacity and assist federal, state, local and tribal law enforcement partners in covert investigative work. Supporting research activities that help to identify characteristics, patterns or other indicators that predict which offenders are likely to be the most dangerous/high-priority suspects.

There is no matching requirement. The deadline to apply is July 29, 2019.

Awards are expected to be made under cooperative agreement beginning on October 1, 2019. Review the solicitation on OJJDP.gov. Apply on Grants.gov.

Body cam footage shows Fla. LEO dragged by suspect's car

Richard Tribou Orlando Sentinel

ORLANDO, Fla. — Orlando Police released body cam footage of an officer being dragged by suspect’s car that hit speeds of up to 60 mph, according to a report on ClickOrlando.com.

The report said OPD Officer Sean Murphy had pulled over Zavier Askew, 25, on May 9 near College Drive and Willie Mays Parkway east of downtown Orlando. The officer found remains of marijuana in the car and asked Askew to exit the vehicle. At one point, Askew runs back into the car and drives off with Office Murphy halfway out the car window.

The body cam footage seen on ClickOrlando shows the moment Askew jumps into the driver’s seat and races off with Murphy’s legs out the window.

“Dude, you’re killing me. Stop, stop. This is attempted murder,” you can hear Officer Murphy’s voice saying in the video.

The report said Askew hit another car on a dead-end road where the chase ended with Askew hitting another car and Officer Murphy nearly avoiding getting pinned. Askew was arrested and charged with

attempted first-degree murder of a law enforcement officer and other charges. He remains at the Orange County Jail.
