but after it became apparent that Rozmiarek wasn't going to travel to New York, we knew we had to contact local law enforcement in his area.We contacted the Beverly Police Department in Massachusetts and gave them our evidence so they could launch whatever investigation they felt appropriate.More information further down the page if you'd like to join up and be trained in working with law enforcement to nab dangerous individuals just like Michael Graue.We've been bringing on volunteers and restocking our roster of people working in chat-rooms and on social networking websites to bring internet predators to police.Hopefully in the future Massachusetts will strengthen their laws and make it so the act of conversing sexually with a minor is prosecuted in a manner consistent with most of the rest of the country.For now though, the outcome that Edward Rozmiarek has been fired, that the media has reported why, and now that his words and actions online have been documented...As the article notes, there are other arrests out there which simply aren't covered by media outlets.Since "To Catch a Predator" ran it's course, we've been focusing on working with police and just getting arrests.

Our organization is still bringing on chat-log contributors and phone verifiers.
However, due to the distance and Edward's paranoia, he was unwilling to make the trip over to New York.
This meant our contact there was unable to arrest him, due to Edward living in Massachusetts.
They work with our chat-room/social networking volunteers to build credibility for our decoy profiles.
