CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) ā€” Gov. Matt Mead says he plans to encourage state lawmakers to put up money to continue funding an agent position in the state’s Internet Crimes against Children Task Force.

Steve “Woody” Woodson is director of the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation, which includes the task force.

Woodson says members of the Legislature’s Joint Appropriations Committee this month recommended against spending $183,000 over the coming two years to cover the cost of the agent position.

Federal government funding for the agent’s position recently expired. The task force focuses on investigating child pornography cases.

Woodson says the task force currently has four DCI agents and two federal agents assigned to it. He says the task force has been keeping the extra agent position vacant recently because of funding uncertainty.
