Mark Herring on Families & Children
Innovative tech to protect children & catch perpetrators
Attorney General Mark R. Herring recognizes that nothing is more important than the safety of our children. That's why he has made Virginia a national leader in the use of innovative technology to protect children and catch perpetrators, and led a
bipartisan effort to expand the reach of Virginia's efforts. He and his team have helped put hundreds of child predators behind bars through aggressive prosecutions and digital forensics work.
Attorney General Herring and his team have made the services of the office more readily available and accessible to state and local law enforcement agencies and invested in a mobile computer forensics lab so technicians can analyze child pornography at
the scene of the crime.
Attorney General Herring's Office has invested in cutting edge technology that makes it easier for investigators to identify child victims and rescue them from dangerous situations.
