FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Awareness is Prevention, Not Just Words.
Las Vegas, NV- April 23, 2015 - "Awareness is Prevention" (AIP) a non-Profit organization dedicated to mitigating Human Trafficking, has sponsored two, 16-hour courses in "Advanced Law Enforcement Human Trafficking" for the Las Vegas Metro Police Department (LVMPD) in April. The AIP sponsored courses were presented by former FBI Agent Greg Bristol and not open to the general public. The course has been qualified for Police Officer Standards & Training (POST) certification which can be noted in the Officer's training records. This is the first class of this kind presented in Clark County. It drew over 65 attendees who are now certified on how to spot the difference in crimes involving domestic servitude versus employment disputes, and how to possibly save a person from sex trafficking rather than making an arrest for illicit sex crimes. Often a Trafficked person will at first deny an affiliation with a trafficker through fear of being harmed or exposing her/his family to retribution. By learning subtle signs, the arresting officer may be able to use existing laws to protect the victim and gather intelligence that will bring the traffickers
to justice. This type of training course offered through AIP may result in saving lives and disrupting Trafficking rings across the country. Awareness is Prevention is not just words; its meaningful collaboration with LVMPD is an effort to keep all of us safe in our communities.
Many others within our communities can benefit from AIP's modified versions of the course. It will help to identify, and possibly save, trafficked persons. Those benefiting from the training include health care workers, public security personnel in all of our local resort casinos, school officials and various houses of worship. Please contact AIP for information on getting involved with arranging age appropriate training and events that may result in freeing someone from either sex trafficking slavery or employment trafficking situations.
AIP will be glad to discuss concerns you have with the gravity of the situation in your area.
