Human Trafficking In The Charlotte Area

One dubious distinction for Charlotte is that we continue to be on the frontlines of human trafficking. Our location at the nexus of two interstates has set us up perfectly for this heinous crime. The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Charlotte has a task force focused on trafficking and CMPD is joining in to help in the effort to reduce and stop what is essentially human slavery.

GUESTS
Jill Westmoreland Rose - US Attorney for the Western District of North Carolina

Sarah Byrne - attorney, Moore & Van Allen, member of Charlotte Metropolitan Human Trafficking Task Force

Kelly Harrison  - Special Agent, Homeland Security Investigations (division of Immigration and Customs Enforcement)
