Child Predator Unit
To track down and arrest those seeking to harm our children, former Attorney General Beau Biden created the Child Predator Task Force shortly after beginning his tenure as the state’s top law enforcement official.
The Task Force, which includes every local police agency in Delaware, puts police and prosecutors side by side to go after the worst of society. It uses the latest technology to find predators online and detect transactions involving pornographic images of children.
The Task Force has surpassed the 150-conviction mark in 2013. Later in the year, the Task Force’s work led to a 28-year sentence for a man convicted of running a child pornography distribution ring in Sussex County.
To complement the Task Force’s work, former Attorney General Beau Biden also worked with members of the General Assembly in 2007 to enact tough new minimum mandatory sentences for those convicted of possessing child pornography.
