The man who introduced the state’s version of Jessica’s Law to protect children from sex offenders says the state now has the tools prosecute online predators, but still needs the man-power and technology to track and catch them on the internet. That’s why Senator John Loudon supports Governor Matt Blunt’s recommendation to boost funding for the Cyber Crimes Grant Program with an additional $500,000 dollars. The half a million dollar increase would double last year’s $250,000 dollar appropriation for detectives’ salaries and personnel training as well as set up an extra quarter million for technology and computer equipment. Loudon says the state needs keep local law enforcement ahead of the developing technology sex offenders use to threaten children online.
