The Special Operations Unit of the Sheriff’s Police conducts investigations into child exploitation and vice related crimes.

The Child Exploitation Unit monitors various chat rooms and social networking websites known to be utilized by juveniles.  They often work in an undercover capacity, posing as a child waiting to see if they will be solicited for sex by an adult. 

The Vice Unit conducts investigations into prostitution, including street solicitations, craigslist and human trafficking, illegal gambling, counterfeit merchandise and animal crimes.

In 2009, this Unit seized more than $6 million in counterfeit merchandise and rescued nearly 200 animals from puppy mills and fighting operations.
