Group Supervisor, Cyber Crimes Group, ICE
San Juan, Puerto Rico
As a Group Supervisor in Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Cyber Crimes Group, Rebecca Gonzalez-Ramos oversees efforts to investigate and target child pornographers, child sex tourists and facilitators, traffickers of minors, criminal aliens convicted of offenses against minors, and individuals who were deported for child exploitation offenses and have returned illegally to the United States.
In partnership with local, state and federal law enforcement and community leaders, Gonzalez-Ramos was the driving force behind the creation of the Puerto Rico Crimes Against Children Task Force, established in June 2011. Through the task force, federal, local and state law enforcement agencies pool their resources to jointly investigate crimes committed against children in Puerto Rico.
Gonzalez-Ramos also oversaw a multiagency investigation resulting in the rescue of a 13-year-old girl who was abducted at gunpoint while she was walking to school and the dismantling of a dangerous kidnapping ring. Law enforcement officials rescued the girl and arrested five subjects including the leader of the kidnapping organization.
ICE prevents terrorist and criminal activity by targeting the people, money and materials that support terrorist and criminal organizations.
