Trends in Trafficking
Million Kids President and CEO, Opal Singleton, just returned from Washington D.C. where she participated in the Police Executive Review Forum. What an extraordinary organization dedicated to leadership and best practices for the law enforcement community. This is the nation’s premier think tank that addresses issues of crime and crime solving. What a privilege to participate with the nation’s top law enforcement executives and NGO’s as they addressed issues related to combating national and global labor and sex trafficking.
During this week’s show, we are going to examine some of the trends that are taking place in sex trafficking. Million Kids has been combating trafficking nationally and internationally for 11 years and much has changed.
Foreign National sex trafficking rings are large-scale, multi-national, and multi-state. Many are led by females. Many are established for the purposes of money laundering. Some use multi-state advertising and the “dates” are made through a centralized call center.
Numerous domestic sex trafficking rings are controlled by gangs. But gangs are changing and are using social media to coerce, recruit, groom and arrange sex buying transactions. Some gangs are operating sex trafficking rings from prison.
Social Media is used in 90% of sex trafficking cases. Much of the communication is encrypted. Social media is used to recruit, groom, exploit, coerce and control the victim.
