After guests mingled and enjoyed refreshments, the meeting was opened by Speedway Police Department’s Lt. Trent Theobald, who introduced Sgt. Mirantha Wilson and Ken Jones, the District Coordinator for District 4.
The program for the evening was a presentation by a representative of the Indiana State Attorney General’s Office, who spoke about the very important – but not often discussed – topic of human trafficking. According to the Attorney General’s website:
Human trafficking is the fastest growing and second largest criminal industry in the world, generating roughtly $32 billion each year. According to the Trafficking in Persons Report produced by the State Department, approximately 27 million men, women and children are victims of some form of human trafficking. Human trafficking occurs when people are recruited to work or provide services through the use of force, fraud, or coercion, and it includes labor and sex trafficking, The average age at which children in the United States first become victims of sex trafficking is 12-14, the FBI estimates that nearly 300,000 American youths are at risk of becoming victims of commercial sexual exploitation.
Abigail also presented some tips on how we can identify potential victims of human trafficking; the list is published at this link on their website.
