Innocence Lost Task Force Provides Aid to Child Victims
|FBI Denver December 20, 2010|
The FBI Innocence Lost Task Force, in partnership with the Denver and Lakewood Police Department's Vice Units, organized a holiday donation for Innocence Lost victims. Detectives from both agencies provided names of 15 victims who will benefit from this very worthy initiative.
The Innocence Lost program addresses criminal enterprises involved in the domestic sex trafficking of children. This initiative has become an effective response to address the victims’ needs through prevention, protection, prosecution, and partnerships with law enforcement, service providers, and the community.
FBI victim specialists reached out to local community partners to assist with the holiday donations, which included the Laboratory to Combat Human Trafficking, Bear Valley Church in Lakewood, and the Southern Human Trafficking Task Force in Colorado Springs. The holiday donations included clothing, baked goods, and gift cards to Subway and Target, along with other personal items.
“The partnership that emerged between all of the agencies and the local community was extraordinary,” said Special Agent in Charge James H. Davis. “The FBI Denver Division gives tremendous credit and thanks to all the volunteers involved! This partnership demonstrates this community’s commitment to combat human trafficking at both the local and international levels.”
