Innocent Images International Task Force
The Innocent Images International Task Force
The Innocent Images International Task Force (IIITF) became operational on October 6, 2004 and serves as the largest task force of its kind in the world.
The IIITF consists of online child sexual exploitation investigators from around the world and includes more than 100 task force officers from 44 different countries. Each year the task force hosts a new member training session that brings newly invited task force officers to the United States to attend a six-week training session where they work side-by-side with special agents of the FBI at the Innocent Images Operations Unit. The IIITF also conducts an annual case coordination meeting where task force members come together in a central location to share best practices and coordinate transnational investigations between members.
The IIITF allows for the real-time transfer of information between the FBI and task force members from other countries and successfully brings together law enforcement entities from around the world to address the global crime problem of online child exploitation.
