“The message is clear – Kentucky is and will continue to be a child-predator-free zone,” said Thabar. “The message to child sexual predators should also be clear – stay out of our state. These people are the lowest dregs of society and we will not allow them to harm our children.”

“The Kentucky State Police led this effort to identify and round up those individuals engaged in criminal on-line activity and in non-compliance with House Bill 3,” said Adams. “But the success of Operation Harvest Moon rests with the cooperation among law enforcement agencies throughout the state. The resources, time and energy invested by these officers, and their familiarity with their populations and locales, are responsible for the effectiveness of the operation.”
