Operation Predator

A new smartphone app is enlisting the public’s help in tracking down sexual predators. The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) launched the first-of-its-kind app today in hopes that people will leave anonymous tips that will help them catch dangerous criminals.

The app is called "Operation Predator" and can be downloaded free from the iTunes store.
Future releases for other smartphones other than Apple OS are expected soon.

Operation Predator reveals to users a list of fugitives the Department of Homeland Security is searching for. Information on all of the fugitives is listed in the app and the ICE hopes the new technology will help lead to more tips regarding unsolved cases.

If you don't have the smartphone app, one can always report suspected child sexual exploitation or missing children to your local law enforcement agency as well as the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, an Operation Predator partner, via its toll-free 24-hour hotline, 1-800-843-5678.
