The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children was established for purposes of the prosecution of individuals for possession of online child pornography, prosecution for the solicitation of minors for sexual activity, and develop Federal approaches to dealing with registered sex offenders.
The Senate and House Caucuses on Missing and Exploited Runaway Children were formed to:
Sponsor legislation reforms
Hold briefings for child advocacy organizations to meet with Senators and staff
Provide advice to Senators in conducting workshops.
By providing support in the legislative front, both the House Caucus and Senate Caucus help to protect children from abduction and exploitation.
