The Issue

 

We know trafficking and child exploitation is a blight on humanity. We must do more. The vulnerable must be protected. Coaxion recognizes the sacrifices made by our law enforcement and other service providers who risk their own well being to save children and find those who harm them. Those who brave this battle deserve our help.

Human trafficking is the business of stealing freedom for profit. It is a multi-billion dollar criminal industry that denies freedom to 24.9 million people around the world. It can happen to anyone but some people are more vulnerable than others and traffickers often identify and leverage their victims’ vulnerabilities in order to create dependency. It is a notoriously underreported crime.

A Problem with Many Forms

Exploitation includes, but is not limited to, online enticement, child sexual abuse material, child sex trafficking. Both terms, however, indicate that advantage is being taken of the child’s lack of power and status.

Sex trafficking and child exploitation investigations are complex and present unique challenges to law enforcement. These cases demand a robust multidisciplinary response. These investigations require a unique skillset to ensure the protection of victims and effective prosecution of offenders.

Both types of investigations require unique approaches to combating the different ways children are victimized. Coaxion can help.
