Rescue is a very specialized leg of the anti-human trafficking movement and requires a very well trained, experienced team to perform this function successfully.
So our Rescue Program is called “Special Ops”.
Special Ops is broken down into 3 different types of operations: Community Outreach, Surveillance and Mobile Ops Teams. Special Ops is the coordinated response to rescue, intervene or intercept a minor victim or a self-identified trafficking victim comprised of a few Community Outreach members, Mobile Ops team members and necessary government Agencies.
- In addition to Task Forcing, Community Outreach initiatives are designed to a) mobilize communities to infiltrate facilitators of trafficking through consistent visitation and service of individuals or families with identified vulnerabilities, to identify and build relationships with victims to provide a safe framework of self-identification
- and exit from prostitution and commercial sexual exploitation.
- Surveillance teams help the community outreach teams locate the service location, security, look out for suspicious activity, investigate and gather Intel on traffickers and liaise with law enforcement agencies.
- Mobile Ops teams serve as extraction teams to safely remove victims from the control of a trafficker to a safe house or as a relocation team from victim/survivor referrals we get from law enforcement agencies or partner organizations.
Our Requests for rescue aid and victim advocacy can come from federal, state and local law enforcement, the District Attorney’s office, social workers, medical professionals, classmates, teachers, observant citizens, concerned family members and victims themselves.
Special consideration will be given to very few but if you are interested in being trained and joining one of our Special Ops Teams or to join one of our community outreach teams please email us at [email protected].
