Human Trafficking and Enforcement agencies in the USA have been successfully finding and arresting predators who are involved in child sex crimes.
According to CBN News, Enforcement Agencies in Arizona have recently arrested 37 people in connection to child and sex trafficking.
"Operation Broken Hearts was an undercover operation targeting sexual predators engaged in child sex crimes and human trafficking," posted the Phoenix Police Department to their Facebook. "Throughout the operational period, officers and undercover detectives placed ads on websites and apps which are commonly sought out by suspects seeking illegal sex acts with children. These suspects solicited and/or brokered deals for various sex acts and were subsequently arrested."
The suspects ranged from 21 to 66-years-old.
At the beginning of February, agencies successfully rescued six adults and two children from traffickers in Missouri.
Authorities in Tallahassee, Florida worked for two years on an investigation. In November 2020 they arrested 178 people in connection to sex crimes and trafficking.
What started the investigation was a 13-year-old's image on a prostitution website. The police special victim's unit recovered the girl in Florida and built their case around it.
A multi-agency human trafficking investigation in Southern California brought 33 missing children back home. They found that at least eight of those children had been sexually exploited.
It is estimated that there are 40 million men, women, and children caught in modern-day slavery, human trafficking, around the world.
