AG Jim Hood task force to combat cyber crimes

The Mississippi Attorney General’s Internet Crimes Against Children task force joins with partners from the U.S. Attorneys’ Offices, of the Northern and Southern Districts of Mississippi, the Oxford Police Department, the Biloxi Police Department, the Adam’s County Sheriff’s Office and the Waveland Police Department to train more than 180 officers on techniques to address the increased usage of cell phones in crimes against children.

“Technology advances rapidly, and cell phones are found in practically every investigation of a crime against a child,” said Attorney General Jim Hood.
