Atlanta Sex-Trafficking Sting Results in Hundreds of Rescued Children And Arrests, Report says.

Posted on

A total of 39 law enforcement agencies conducted a massive sex-trafficking sting operation which concluded this week and resulted in hundreds of arrests and hundreds of children rescued.

WSB-TV reports:

Operation Safe Summer was a collaborative effort between the FBI’s Atlanta field office and 38 law enforcement agencies in six metro counties. …

The sting ended with nearly 160 children rescued, including one as young as 3 years old, and nearly 150 arrests, convictions or sentences, officials said.

“They are crimes of special concern to the FBI and to law enforcement generally,” Special Agent in Charge Matt Alcoke told WSB-TV. “Because the victims are so vulnerable as children and because the offenders could be from just about any walk of life, from a gang member all the way up to someone who is highly successful and wealthy.”

“It’s important for those of us who are responsible for the children, the parents, the guardians, the older siblings, to not let children fall away (from) those strongly centered circles of importance,” Alcoke continued.
