The Hayward Police Department has joined the Wisconsin Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.

"The City of Hayward Police Department is looking forward to being a member of the Wisconsin ICAC Task Force," Hayward Police Chief Joel Clapero said in a news release. "Together we will identify and solve crimes against children and help bring justice against those individuals who choose to prey on our children."

As part of this affiliation, the Hayward Police Department is eligible for:

  • Investigative assistance.
  • Reimbursement for ICAC-related expenses, including computer hardware and software.
  • Notification of and priority for ICAC-related training, both nationally and in Wisconsin. The task force has nearly 200 members statewide, up from slightly more than 20 local law enforcement agencies in 2007. Last year the task force was responsible for arresting 131 suspected child predators -- the highest number of arrests during a calendar year recorded for the task force.
