The Vancouver ICAC task force, who liken themselves to hero’s, knowingly run ILLEGAL pro active internet stings , entrapping innocent law abiding citizens. They then report these victims to the federal government to gain multiple funding grants.
Here is a story on their current lead investigator:
$429,000 of the general fund—state appropriation for fiscal year 2018 and $429,000 of the general fund—state appropriation for fiscal year 2019 are provided solely for expenditure into the nonappropriated Washington internetcrimesagainstchildren account for the implementation of chapter 84, Laws of 2015.
The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention funds this force, which provides diverse services to law enforcement, child victimization professionals, parents and educators. Ten years after the ICAC’s founding, in 2008, Congress passed a piece of legislation called the “Protect the Children Act,” which established rules for ICAC operations. However, critics argue that both the ICAC and the courts are guilty of ignoring these rules and/or forgetting their intent or relevance.
The ICAC Task Force helps Federal, State and local law enforcement agencies enhance their investigative responses to offenders who use the Internet, online communication systems, or computer technology to sexually exploit children. The Program is funded by the United States Department of Justice, Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention. The ICAC Program is a national network of 61 coordinated task forces representing over 3,000 federal, state, and local law enforcement and prosecutorial agencies that are engaged in proactive investigations, forensic investigations, and criminal prosecutions.

6/11/18 I personally spoke to ‘Lisa’, a police officer on the task force, assists the woman in charge in las vegas – they do not send out pictures of adult women. they can send a picture of a woman in the force from when she was younger. It is regulated by the judges in the area the sting is run – they approve what can and can’t be used. They set the criteria as to what is acceptable.
In their area, they try to get the ‘proactive’ target to admit he knows he is talking to a child of xx years. That is the crime per Lisa, the end game in Las Vegas.
