“Operation Perseus”

SYNOPSIS OF OPERATION

The Dallas Police Department North Texas Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force, in partnership with Mesquite PD, Garland PD, and Grand Prairie PD, conducted Operation Perseus from August 28th through September 1st. The goal of this multi-agency operation was to leverage the resources of the North Texas ICAC Task Force to target individuals in the Dallas metropolitan area who use the Internet to sexually exploit children through online solicitation, child pornography, and Internet sex trafficking of minors. 

The Command Center for Operation Perseus was the Dallas Police Department’s ICAC Task Force office with twenty-two (22) participating local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies. There were sixty-five (65) investigative personnel assigned to the operation to execute search warrants, file criminal cases, and arrest suspects.

The collaborative operation was a tremendous success which resulted in twenty-eight (28) arrests, execution of twenty-six (26) search warrants, two (2) pending arrests, and six (6) ongoing cases which are anticipated to result in arrests. 

The success of “Operation Perseus” serves as a clear message that the Internet is a hostile environment for those who are looking to harm or exploit children in the North Texas Region.
