Ohio is pumping more money into a program that protects children from abuse and exploitation online. While the money will go towards important resources, state leaders said parents still play the most vital role.

Lawmakers added $1 million into Ohio's Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force fund.

The group, which investigates child abuse imagery and online enticement, will use the money to increase personnel, upgrade equipment, and advance training.
