MARCH 21—The FBI next month will implement a case management system to support its national Innocent Images program, through which it tries to nab child pornographers.

Vredenburg Information Technology Group of Reston, Va., developed the case management system for the FBI and is testing it this month. With the new system, the FBI will be able develop profiles and identify offenders more easily, Vredenburg vice president Larry Den said today during an interview at the FOSE 2001 trade show in Washington.

The bureau will use the new system, tied to an Oracle Corp. database, to capture, index, store, analyze and retrieve data in different formats, including text, image, audio and video.

Agents working on the undercover program, which began in 1995, investigate people suspected of using computers and telecommunications tools to recruit minors into illicit sexual relationships and to receive or distribute child pornography.
