St. Charles Police Join Initiative to Combat Child Exploitation

The offices of the Kane County State's Attorney and Kane County Sheriff recently launched the Child Exploitation Unit, aimed at stopping the distribution of child pornography and online exploitation of children.

The Unit was created in collaboration with the St. Charles Police Department, which is providing office and technology space where a computer forensics expert can analyze electronic devices for evidence of crimes committed.

The special unit is housed inside our police department utilizing a state-of-the-art cyber lab for investigations.

“The St. Charles Police Department is proud to do its part to assist the Kane County State’s Attorney and Sherriff in catching and prosecuting these exploitive crimes,” said St. Charles Police Chief Jim Keegan. “Our cyber lab is fully equipped with specialized technology to track and analyze electronic evidence to bring these heinous criminals to justice.”
