Operation Restore Hope child porn investigation nets 67 arrests in Georgia

A three month child pornography investigation has resulted in 67 arrests in 35 Georgia counties. The statewide investigation involved federal, state and local law enforcement and targeted the online distribution of child porn.

The Atlanta Journal Constitution has the story.

The investigation, known as Operation Restore Hope, was spearheaded by the GBI’s Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. Authorities initiated the investigation in an effort to suppress the online sharing of child porn and to protect children from online predators.

Authorities in the 35 Georgia counties obtained search warrants on January 12. Since then, police have confiscated over 300 computers in addition to the 67 arrests.
