Vermont law enforcement agencies fighting Internet crimes against children are getting some help from the federal government.
U.S. Attorney Tom Anderson says the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force will receive a 250-thousand-dollar grant from the Justice Department.
The Internet crimes task forces are a response to the growing number of children and teenagers using the Internet, the proliferation of child pornography and online activity by child predators.
The Vermont task force has been conducting public outreach, training prosecutions.
The new money will help continue those programs and expand to include a statewide, multi-agency computer forensic lab.
