HARRISBURG – The Office of the Attorney General’s state-of-the-art Child Predator Section Command Center was unveiled today, according to Senator Jake Corman (R-Bellefonte). Senator Corman was on hand for the introduction as a key proponent of budget funding for the Unit.
“Attorney General Kane has done a great job identifying effective ways to find child predators and built this command center around those techniques and with state-of-the-art technology,” said Corman. “The treat of child predators to our communities is staggering and having the tools to effectively combat these criminals is very good thing for the Commonwealth.”
Senator Corman lead support for funding of the Child Predator in this past June’s budget negotiations, which included a $3 million increase to fund its operations, staff and programs.
“It is imperative that the state take a proactive approach in identifying and prosecuting predators before they can hurt children. This is exactly what the Child Predator Interceptor Unit was created to do and I am glad we were able to work cooperatively to support and strengthen this worthy program.”
