Child Victim Identification Program Law and Legal Definition

The Child Victim Identification Program (CVP) is a program that serves as the clearinghouse in the U.S., for child-pornography cases. It also serves as the main point of contact to international agencies for victim identification. CVP is the world's largest database that stores information of child pornography. The database is maintained by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

The database stores images contributed by the FBI, Secret Service, Postal Inspection Service, and several other organizations.

The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children's Child Victim Identification Program (CVIP) has a dual purpose:

1. Helping prosecutors get convictions by proving that a real child is depicted in child pornography images.

2. Assisting law enforcement in locating unidentified child victims.
