Cybertips increase in Wyoming

The number of tips per year the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation received through its Internet Crimes Against Children task force increased between 2016 and 2021.

Two members of the Teton County Sheriff’s Office were recognized at a statewide ceremony by the Law Enforcement Coordinating Committee in Lander on Tuesday.

Investigative Sgt. Clayton Platt and Investigator Dustin Richards were recognized for their efforts as members of the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, a team of investigators from agencies across the state that’s run by the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation.
