Our History

The Sacramento Valley Hi-Tech Crimes Task Force is part of the Centralized Investigations Division of the Sacramento Sheriff's Office. First organized in the mid-1990's, the Task Force is currently comprised of city, county, state, and federal law enforcement agencies. 


Currently, the Task Force consists of non-sworn personnel and full-time investigators from the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office, California Highway Patrol, Sacramento Police Department, San Joaquin County Sheriff and Sacramento County Probation. Over the years the Task Force has continued to grow.  


As of 2019, there are in excess of 110 affiliate agencies throughout the Central Valley and Northern California that work with the Task Force on a part time basis. Additionally, some of these Investigators are cross designated as United States Marshals and are Task Force Officers (TFOs) with the Federal Bureau of Investigation's Child Exploitation Task Force.

Always Evolving

While the protection and safety of youth online remains one of the critical goals of our operations, as the internet has grown, so too has our mission. Today, the Sacramento Valley Hi-Tech Task Force provides technical assistance, investigation support, computer forensic analysis, law enforcement training, and public information and outreach initiatives on a wide variety of high technology crime issues statewide.
