The Highland Park Patch article of March 2, 2015, titled “A Growing Problem: Sheriff, Activist Weigh In On Sex Trafficking in Lake County” discusses the issue of sex trafficking in Lake County, as well as efforts being made to curtail its incidence.
The article discusses the impact of the internet on child pornography, pornography, prostitution and sex trafficking.
One excerpt, quoting Lake County Sheriff Mark Curran:
The Lake County Sheriff’s Department has been “all over this” issue for a long time, Curran said.
“We’ve had some major stings on Johns for years now,” he said.
Even with an increased number of stings and awareness events, like one planned by the Sheriff’s Department for the College of Lake County in April on the link between pornography and trafficking – law enforcement and activists are fighting an uphill battle when it comes to sex trafficking.
