Human Trafficking Seminar

Community Learns Awareness and Prevention Tactics at Human Trafficking Seminar
Posted on 02/04/2019
Many school system employees, parents, and community members turned out for a presentation on human trafficking in the theater at Douglas County High School on January 28. It was no coincidence that the school system scheduled the seminar the week before the Super Bowl, an event that is associated with an uptick in sex trafficking. 

Douglas County is not immune to this crime. The day after the seminar, the Douglas County Sentinel reported that 16 people in Douglas County were recently arrested in a human trafficking and prostitution sting operation in the Thornton Road area.

"We were happy to provide on opportunity for the citizens of Douglas County to learn how to be aware and vigilant when they suspect someone is in danger of being trafficked for sex," said Mr. James Strong, director of student support and safety management for the school system. "An informed community is a safer community."

The program was presented by Mrs. Dalia Racine, who served as a prosecutor for 15 years in Fulton and DeKalb Counties, specializing in human trafficking and related crimes. She now trains law enforcement and prosecutors across the country.
