Because of the widespread and random nature of then, cyber-crimes have a tendency to go undetected from a great period of time.
In response to this growing field of criminal behavior, many law enforcement agencies have created internet crime task forces to apprehend individuals with intent to commit internet based crimes. Specifically, a number of law enforcement agencies have dedicated resources towards apprehending perpetrators of sexual crimes who largely operate through the use of the internet.
