December 2021 – Sex trafficking seems to be growing exponentially, but thankfully, so are efforts to end it. Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt’s office and Missouri State Highway Patrol are joining the fight.
In Operation United Front, Missouri officials partnered with law enforcement to successfully rescue 47 trafficking victims as well as arrest 102 individuals from 12 states across the country.
“Operation United Front was an unprecedented human trafficking operation that brought together law enforcement agencies from different jurisdictions – something that rarely happens,” Schmitt said. “When we all come together, we can affect change and more effectively fight human trafficking, a crime that is often multi-jurisdictional in nature. My office will not stop in our quest to investigate and eradicate human trafficking in Missouri.”
