Now an amputee, Joseph recalls to AMW about hearing a sound similar to a bomb just before he looked down to see his leg was practically gone.

FOX-TV’s “America’s Most Wanted” Highlights Florida’s First-in-the-Nation Statewide CyberCrime Sweep Using Groundbreaking Technology to Fight Online Predators

The Internet may have revolutionized communications, but it’s also provided a dark cover for some of the most twisted predators: perverts who make and distribute child pornography. State- of-the-art technology is now revolutionizing the way law enforcement fights back. This week on AMERICA’S MOST WANTED (Saturday, June 13th 9:00 PM ET/PT on FOX), host John Walsh will show viewers how authorities in Florida are using sophisticated technology – and how it’s yielded big results.

Governor Charlie Crist created Florida’s CyberCrime Unit in 2005, while serving as the state’s Attorney General, with a mission to protect children from computer-facilitated sexual exploitation. Under Florida’s current Attorney General, Bill McCollum, the CyberCrime Unit has expanded to include a staff of more than 30 in five offices throughout the state.

A task force made up the CyberCrime Unit, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, the U.S. Marshals Service and local authorities recently conducted “Operation Orange Tree.” AMW crews were on hand as agents used the new high-tech tool to pinpoint locations where child porn was being downloaded – and to take down the suspected predators. While highlighting the advanced technology, the crime-fighting TV show will also ask its viewers to help cops locate several suspected predators who’ve slipped through law enforcement’s net.

In its 22 seasons, AMW and its viewers have helped capture more than 1,060 dangerous criminals, including dozens of child predators.

AMERICA’S MOST WANTED airs Saturdays, 9 PM ET/PT, 8 PM CT on FOX. AMW is produced by STF Productions; Inc. Lance Heflin is Executive Producer. Steve Katz is Co-Executive Producer.
