LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3.com) -- The fight against child exploitation is intensifying with a unique set of cyber fighters in Southern Nevada.
Kevin Leduc is a U.S. Army veteran whose commitment to serving his community finds new life.
Back from fighting terrorism in the Middle East, he is facing another evil in our backyard -- child predators -- and News 3 learned the crime's presence in southern Nevada is alarming.
It was a call that required a huge show of force not just from local police but homeland security.
The alleged crime was possessing child porn.
Gathering the evidence comes down to Leduc.
He is one of the valley's newest fighters against cyber child crimes and one of only 17 members of the Human Exploitation Rescue Operative Corps, also known as the Hero Corps which is stationed in only a handful of cities across the United States.
