MEDFORD, Ore. — The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office opened its doors to any local law enforcement officer for a human trafficking training.

They had the supervisor of the Portland Police Bureau’s human trafficking unit on site. Sgt. Mike Geiger spent a few hours reviewing how human trafficking is viewed, the traditional terms used, and other misconceptions regarding it. Portland’s donned the name “Porn-land” because of its sex trade. Police there have seen a lot of cases coming from California but several in Medford.

“The merger of technology with anonymity. What I mean by that, is people can just go on the internet and they can order up on a child. So, where there is demand? There will be trafficking,” explained Sgt. Geiger.

Geiger also focused on recognizing prostitutes as victims and pimps,  as trafficking perpetrators.

    DHS child welfare are the biggest human trafficking contributors the world has ever seen. Do something about it. Its not due process and I’m sure some of the children are used for sex slaves. Don’t believe me? Research.
