It might be a better idea to fund an IT infrastructure before spending all this money on all these different agencies all over the place.
If the state had a decent, functional IT infrastructure, and hired knowledgable IT personnell, it would be much easier for law enforcement to provide these kinds of services to the public...on the other hand, it's a PARENTS job to lock down what comes over the wires into their homes, and there's plenty of small businesses that provide the tools necessary for PARENTS to do this..tell me again, 'why' does the 'government' need to 'protect' the kids more than their own PARENTS??? sounds kind of fishy too me.
