The Michigan State Police (MSP) and The Salvation Army Eastern Michigan Division have received a $1.5 million federal grant from the United States Department of Justice, Office of Justice Programs, Bureau of Justice Assistance, and Office for Victims of Crime to help combat human trafficking in Wayne, Oakland and Macomb counties.
Over the next three years, the MSP will play an integral role in creating a multi-agency collaborative taskforce, called the Joint Anti-Trafficking Taskforce (JATT), that will investigate and prosecute sex and labor trafficking cases at the local, state and federal levels. Law enforcement personnel assigned to the taskforce will investigate human trafficking cases involving all ages and genders. At the same time, The Salvation Army will work to align local victim services agencies to focus on the problem of human trafficking, utilizing the strengths and expertise of each organization.
The JATT will include the following organizations: Vista Maria, Wayne County Sexual Assault Forensic Examiner’s Program, Matrix Human Services: Off the Streets, University of Michigan Human Trafficking Law Clinic and Alternatives for Girls.
The MSP and The Salvation Army are dedicated to preventing human trafficking and rescuing those being trafficked, both within the target area of Wayne, Oakland and Macomb counties, as well as across Michigan.
