UMass Amherst Rescue Lab

For more than a decade, the UMass Rescue Lab has been the premier computer science research group working to rescue children from Internet-based victimization. Our first-class research and novel forensic methods are used by investigators in every US state and in many countries around the world.

Over a thousand children have been rescued from sexual abuse by investigators using our tools in every US state and over 40 countries. We have never charged for our tools or trainings.

We aim to protect all children from technology-driven exploitation, but we cannot achieve our goals alone.
