U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), in collaboration with Brazil Ministry of Justice and Public Security (MJSP) Secretariat for Integrated Operations (SEOPI) Cyber Laboratory, executed phase eight of Operation Protected Childhood (OPC) resulting in the arrest of approximately 88 alleged child predators. This large-scale simultaneous enforcement action was executed between June 8 and June 11.

The efforts of HSI, CRC Technology, and the strong international partnerships generated a significant increase in the number of child exploitation investigations and arrests conducted throughout the region. Since 2017, Operation Protected Childhood has resulted in a total of approximately 861 arrests, 1,560 executed search warrants, and dozens of minor victims rescued.

This month, Operation Protected Childhood 8 has led to the arrest of more than 85 predators both here in the US and in the five partnering countries. 

We are honored that these dedicated Law Enforcement Partners in Argentina, Brazil, Ecuador, Panama, Paraguay and the USA are utilizing our CRC Technology to capture predators and protect innocence.
