ARC Adheres to US State and Federal Laws
And Collaborates With Government Programs And Agencies

ARC conducts all of its investigations through means that are consistent with applicable state and federal laws. During our child recovery process, we maintain effective communication and coordination with various agencies and departments, as appropriate, including but not limited to:

  • State and/or Federal law enforcement entities who arrest suspected perpetrators, kidnappers and/or traffickers

  • Social Services departments who ensure that the abducted child is reunited to the lawful parent(s) or custodian(s) or appropriately placed in a safe residence or recovery program

ARC coordinates all investigations through proper documentation obtained from the presiding judicial systems, both State and Federal, and coordinates each child recovery through effective communication with any law enforcement and social services agencies that are directly involved in each case.

Background investigations are performed on custodial and non-custodial guardians and affiliates requesting support.

The majority of ARC's cases come by referral from other entities. This allows us to hand-pick our cases rather than be tasked with the overwhelming demands of those seeking help.

We are able to maintain the confidentiality of our sources and methods, which helps us to successfully accomplish our missions.

We are able to come alongside custodial guardians and provide them with guidance and tools to navigate political and judicial fault lines in their case.

These factors so often result in excessive timelines, wasted energy and finances, and impractical and confusing solutions that ultimately catapult the missing and exploited child into even more danger.

Tracking Child Trafficking through Social Media and Technology

Social media and other forms of technology play an essential role in the illicit criminal activities of child sex trafficking. Child predators now weaponize apps and social media against vulnerable children. They use a number of sites, apps, and platforms to recruit children, facilitate communication, target victims, and to thwart law enforcement efforts. A 2015 study found that approximately 70% of sex trafficking cases utilize the internet, apps and social media.

Technology is also playing an increasingly pivotal role in ARC's child trafficking investigations. ARC's investigative team searches social media to locate missing children and identify perpetrators.

Institutional Child Exploitation (ICE)

DEFINITION: Institutional Child Exploitation (ICE) is the use and abuse of judiciary or law enforcement powers to facilitate the sexual exploitation of minors either by direct or indirect contact or willfully facilitating the opportunity for third party participants to sexually exploit minors.

ARC not only coined and defined the term “institutional child exploitation” but is considered the leader among NGOs dealing with institutional child exploitation in the United States.
