Carteret County Sheriff's Office receives new software for finding child predators

Posted: Updated:
BEAUFORT, N.C. -

A local law enforcement agency has new technology to catch child predators.

The Carteret County Sheriff's Office has new computer equipment and software to investigate Internet crimes against children.

It will help detectives identify people who develop inappropriate online relationships with kids, and those who download child porn.

The Safe Surfin' Foundation and other groups made the donation of this equipment possible.

The sheriff's office has also assigned one of their detectives to work with the State Bureau of Investigations on these types of cases.

"That's wonderful. Those who deal in pornography have the latest in technology helping them do the dirt they do. I believe we need to do everything we can to keep our children safe," said Annette Hoskins-Satterfield, New Bern resident. She says she wishes such technology were available to law enforcement in all counties.

The Carteret County Sheriff's Office says it investigated 82 sex cases in 2012. That's a 19 percent increase from the year before.
