Investigators strive to identify offenders and present evidence for the prosecution of violators while minimizing trauma to the child victims.

E.M.C.U. is a cooperative, joint investigative unit staffed with Sedgwick County Sheriff personnel, Wichita Police Department personnel, and Kansas Department of Children and Families personnel. The Forensic Computer Crimes Unit and the Kansas Internet Crimes Against Children Investigators work within the E.M.C.U. structure.
