I have worked for Steve Bullock for the past four years and for the attorney general's office for many years before Bullock took office. I established Montana's Computer Crime Unit at the AG's office, and I am part of a team of highly skilled, dedicated officers who devote themselves to protecting kids from the unseemly side of the Internet and all forms of child exploitation. When Bullock decided to run for attorney general, he asked us about what he could do to protect his kids and ours from the threats posed by technologies that seem to outpace our ability to comprehend them. I told Bullock what we needed to get the job done, and he has delivered.
Bullock ran for attorney general on a platform that emphasized protecting our children. Today, thanks to Bullock, Montana has the best child protection task force in the United States. The AG's agents and fellow officers across Montana serve on an Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force that is staffed more effectively than ever before. My agency, the Montana Division of Criminal Investigation, has more agents patrolling the information super highway than we did before we elected Bullock. Agents are on the street, enforcing Montana's Sexual and Violent Offender Registration laws. We are out there, 24-7, working to apprehend predators before they strike close to home, and we are making a difference.
As governor, Bullock will ensure that support of our work continues. I trust him to fulfill that commitment because his record is a testament to actions speaking more loudly than words.
