Law Enforcement Agency Assistance Program…(LEAAP)…a giant “leap” in the fight against Internet Predators!
This program will provide assistance for law enforcement agencies to join an Internet Crimes Against Children (I.C.A.C.) regional task force. Qualifying selected agencies will receive sufficient funding and support to provide for the necessary equipment, software, and training for one Internet crime investigator.
More Cops = fewer criminals = safer children!
The goal of the LEAAP grant program is to supplement the thinly stretched budgets of law enforcement agencies in order to allow more agencies to be able to step in and take an active role in initiating Internet sex crime investigations, at the local level.
This assistance will plant the seeds to grow and extend a seamless web of protection for children as they ‘surf the net”.
Tony first joined the fight against modern-day slavery after meeting with Sheriff Michael Brown at Dulles airport while en route to Baghdad, over a decade ago. After been briefed on human trafficking and sexual predators on the internet, Tony promised that on his return to the US he would visit Sheriff Brown and ICAC (Internet Crimes Against Children) federal task in Virginia.
After being shown horrific footage, Tony, without hesitation, joined the fight and because of his intelligence background was immediately deputized as a Sheriff and brought on board ICAC federal task force. Since then Tony has taken on the fight on various levels including creating MOSFED in London together with the then head of human trafficking of Scotland Yard and current Dep Asst Commissioner, Richard Martin. The organization is primarily involved in assisting law enforcement and the facilitation of communication between law enforcement entities.
Tony has spoken at the United Nations, G20 women’s conference in Paris France and various other prestigious political platforms on human trafficking.
