Your, and other, organizations are doing a great job getting the word out and educating us about how to identify human trafficking and where to reach out for help. QUESTION: what is being done to remove the "market" for the these children who are slaves to the sex trade? This is taking place in our communities, as you point out in the programs you present. To me, that means there are people we see about town (perhaps men we know) who keep this "business" going by patronizing it. I have not heard about the law pursuing those who pay for the use of someone for sex. Is it against the law to procure sex? (at all) or with a minor? Thanks for any info you can give on this.
Hey everybody! I wanted to personally invite you to take a look at what my wife has been working so hard on lately to help women who have been rescued from sex trafficking! It would really mean a lot to me if you just took a few minutes to watch a video and consider backing her kickstarter. If you can’t at this time it’s totally cool. You could always share it with your friends! I would really appreciate it! Thank you so much! Looking forward to seeing what happens!
Inside information about “Gangstalking” and “Gangstalkers” (Avoid Winnipeg Canada by any means. Do not let anyone you never met convince you to go) Most, if not all Gangstalkers are hired by Scientologists. They are directly affiliated with the Church of Scientology. Gangstalkers are funded by Scientologists below low wages to stalk one person illegally and torture said person until they are either outstripped completely, isolated, and homeless. They drive around with Neurophones and their own mobile network, intoxicated off of synthetic drugs and cocaine abuses to keep themselves awake and focused on abusing their target. They drive around a 5 mile radius around the target with their neurophones aimed at their targets and they harass and abuse the person Into submission. What these guys are doing is “fair gaming” (google the definition) and an illegal pyramid scheme where they trick you into becoming their debt slave, for little to no money. They are workers sent from Scientology to electronically abuse/torture, and traffick new members that has submitted to be their “warloot” into their organization to sell their overly priced and almost impossible to sell products. The commission that they pay Gangstalkers is not worth the time or risk. It’s the easiest way to destroy your life, healthy relationships and careers. It’s more of a punishment than an opportunity, do not be fooled into becoming apart of this, it’s not worth it or rewarding!! If you can track these people with emf readers or other devices, then more likely then not, you can find them in their cars near you. If we can find the ones on foot around us, then we can press charges against them and finally put an end to this ridiculous and terrible program. There is a lawsuit coming together, but we need to hit them with everything we got by disclosing anything and everything we know about them. The ending to this covert chaos is nearing! Don’t let up!
As a remote employee, one of my daily distractions is having soaps in the background for an hour break. I find it interesting that The Young and the Restless is currently addressing human sex trafficking as one of its story lines. Great awareness participation by the network.

It will take all of us in the community working together to prevent human trafficking; disrupt the related networks; and restore those who have been impacted. We are grateful for Redux Realty’s decision to partner with us to build a community free from human trafficking.

We appreciate the support of the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office.

The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office was honored to be part of the host committee of the Northern Virginia Human Trafficking Initiative Gala held by the Northern Virginia Human Trafficking Initiative (NOVA-HTI) last week.

NOVA-HTI exists to eradicate sex and labor trafficking in Northern Virginia. Friday night’s event is part of an effort to identify, recover, and restore those held captive to sex and labor trafficking in Northern Virginia.

The group heard from Susan Young, her eldest daughter was sold into sex trafficking in Northern Virginia at the age of 15. Ms. Young shared her experience in an effort to prevent this evil from affecting other families.

The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office is and continues to be on the frontline in human/sex trafficking investigations in our region.

Understanding our proximity to Washington Dulles International Airport and the fact that human/sex trafficking of children is a $100-million industry in the DC Metropolitan area, the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office is part of, and works closely with the FBI Child Exploitation and Human Trafficking Task Force, the Northern Virginia Human Trafficking Task Force, and the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.

As human trafficking also involves street-based commercial sex, the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office continues to coordinate operations with the agency’s Tactical Enforcement Unit, the Community Resource Unit and our federal partners with the United States Department of State and agents from the FBI Child Exploitation and Human Trafficking Task Force. These operations utilize Internet based sites often used to provide and solicit sexual services. All too often those involved in commercial sex are forced or coerced to provide these services.

Loudoun County Sheriff Mike Chapman, a 23-year veteran of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), recognizes the trafficking of drugs by drug organizations, including criminal gangs, also often involves sex trafficking. To target these criminal enterprises, Loudoun detectives are involved in the DEA’s Washington/Baltimore High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area Task Force and the Northern Virginia Gang Task Force.

The LCSO also works closely with Loudoun County Public Schools (Guidance Counselors and School Resource Officers), Loudoun County Family Services and the Loudoun Abused Women’s Shelter.

The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office works closely with our local, regional and federal partners to combat these horrific crimes.

Thank you to our sponsors, donors, dedicated volunteers, guests, and staff who made the Gala so successful. NOVA-HTI could not do what we do if it wasn't for your continued support.

Cyber Risk Advisory Firm Affirms Corporate Values with Support of the Northern Virginia Human Trafficking Initiative

"One thing I have learned over the years is that, to truly see an end to human trafficking and properly serve those impacted within our own communities, it must be a collaborative effort," said NOVA-HTI Executive Director Kay Duffield. "No one person or organization can combat this underground criminal industry on its own, which is why we are so grateful for partnerships—such as the one we have with Nehemiah Security. We are stronger together and can bring lasting change for generations to come."
