BISMARCK, N.D. — The North Dakota Attorney General’s Office is getting a $230,000 federal grant to help prevent online exploitation of children.

Members of the state’s congressional delegation say the money is coming through the U.S. Justice Department’s National Internet Crimes against Children Task Force.

The grant will help the state Bureau of Criminal Investigation train and equip affiliate agencies for computer forensics investigations. It also will help the agency maintain parole and probation officers who manage sex offender caseloads.
