GREEN BAY (WLUK) — Brown County authorities say they added another deterrence to those attempting to purchase sex from victims of human trafficking.
In conjunction with the Cook County Sheriff’s Office in Chicago, Brown County Sheriff’s Office, De Pere Police Department, Green Bay Police Department and Ashwaubenon Public Safety participated in the 16th National Johns Suppression Initiative (NJSI) from July 25 to Aug. 26.
The article goes on to state the following:
The operation resulted in 19 arrests in the county, as well as Brown County Sheriff’s Office making additional arrests on its own.
Sgt. Matt Wilson, the human trafficking investigator for the Brown County Sheriff’s Office said some of the suspects arrested were people they’re familiar with, while others are not from Brown County.
“This year was anywhere from 20-years-old, one guy was over 60, actually I believe tho over 60. Some were married, had children, and worked in the community,” said Wilson.
Brown County chief deputy, Todd Delain, said investigators also sent 409 warnings to those they were unable to arrest.
During the operation, undercover officers posted online ads. When investigators could not arrange a meeting with the suspects, a deterrence message was sent to them via text or email.
