Katy ISD Police Department Hosts Undercover Chat for Federal Initiative to Prevent Child ExploitationKaty ISD Police Department Hosts Undercover Chat for Federal Initiative to Prevent Child Exploitation2016-06-23T20:38:27Z<div class="ExternalClassF6F2DA3B2D0D4FE4A83059E3C48A4B2A"><p><em>Three-day operation leads to 10 arrests</em></p><p>The Katy ISD Police Department hosted an undercover chat operation as part of the Federal Initiative "Operation Broken Heart," a two-month investigative effort aimed at effectively identifying and arresting individuals engaging in the online sexual exploitation of children.   </p><p>Individuals involved in these types of crimes are likely to commit other crimes of opportunity including abductions and sexual assaults of children. The Houston Metro Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force and assisting agencies have committed to aggressively participate in the initiative. They are joined by 60 other coordinated task forces across the U.S., representing more than 3,300 federal, state and local law enforcement agencies. </p><p>During the three-day operation held in Katy, Fort Bend County, 10 offenders were identified and arrested for online solicitation of a minor and attempted sexual assault of a minor. The Katy ISD Police Department found the operation to be extremely successful due in large part to the support of surrounding police agencies and the community's dedication to keeping children safe from predators. </p><p>Agencies assisting in the Katy ISD Police Department ICAC operation included Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office, Fort Bend County District Attorney's Office, Waller County District Attorney's Office, Houston Police Department, Rosenberg Police Department, Harris County Multi Agency Gang Task Force, Federal Bureau of Investigations, Homeland Security Investigations, Texas Department of Public Safety and Harris County Precinct 1 Constable's Office.</p><p>Click <a href="/Documents/KISD%20ICAC%20Op%20Mugshots%20Combined.pdf">here</a> to view offenders arrested during the Katy ISD Police Department ICAC operation. </p></div>
