(TheConservativeNews.org) – In recent months, our headlines have been dominated by bickering politicians and the COVID-19 crisis. Events that would normally be big news have largely gone unnoticed. Because of that, a significant story regarding human trafficking was overlooked.
On Tuesday, February 2, California law enforcement announced the arrests of 64 people in relation to a sex trafficking operation. This followed a series of stings police had set up to apprehend those responsible. The arrests had taken place over the four days leading up to the announcement.
These arrests were the product of multi-agency cooperation on tackling organized sex crime in California. Operation Reclaim and Rebuild has been running for seven years, bringing together federal, state, and local police forces to combat these horrific activities.
Police have attracted a huge amount of criticism over the last year, much of it unfair. Stories like this one provide valuable reminders of how law enforcement keeps us safe from the various predatory forces at play in the world.
