MADISON, Wis. (AP) - The Wisconsin Department of Justice and multiple local police departments have made nearly 100 arrests in a national sweep targeting internet child sex predators.

The DOJ announced Thursday that the agency along with over 40 local and federal law enforcement agencies made 87 arrests in Wisconsin during a week of participating in Operation Broken Heart.

The crackdown was conducted in April and May. It targeted offenders who possess, manufacture and distribute child pornography; use the internet to entice children into sex; or engage in child prostitution or child sex tourism.

More than 3,000 federal, state and local law enforcement agencies participated. The operation resulted in 1,368 arrests.
