This FBI program focuses on abductions, violent attacks and sexual abuse of children. Its initiatives include rapid deployment teams for child abductions and the “Innocence Lost” program, which investigates sex trafficking of minors. The FBI says the Crime Against Children Program uses “multi-disciplinary and multi-agency teams to investigate and prosecute crimes that cross legal, geographical, and jurisdictional boundaries; promoting and enhancing interagency sharing of intelligence, specialized skills, and services; and widely offering our victim/witness services.”

The portfolio of the FBI white-collar-crime unit has broadened as its staffing has decreased since the agency began designating more agents to terrorism investigations. The agency investigates such things as corporate, health care, insurance, mortgage, securities and bankruptcy frauds. Its casework includes anti-trust crime, adoption scams, environmental crime, memorabilia fraud and some types of computer crime. The webpage links to FBI resources on the subject, including a basic backgrounder on the agency's white collar crime strategies and overviews of the assorted crimes the unit investigates.
