US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has released an app that it hopes will engage the public in helping hunt down child predators. Operation Predator (free) is designed for the public to help ICE Homeland Security Investigations agents identify and locate suspected child predators.

The front page of the app provides two large buttons for submitting tips by phone or online, and there’s a scrolling list of current alerts with photos and names. In addition, the app provides news about the latest investigations and arrests, and will provide alerts when new suspects are being sought.

Operation Predator is also the place to find information about ICE’s partners in fighting the exploitation of children:, the ICAC Task Force, Virtual Global Taskforce, INTERPOL, and Amber Alert.
