GREEN BAY (NBC 26) — The Green Bay Police Department and the Wisconsin Division of Criminal Investigation conducted a one-day joint operation Thursday that was focused on identifying and locating victims of human trafficking.

Green Bay police detectives and DCI agents investigated individuals involved in both child sex trafficking and human trafficking type incidents. As a result, two men were arrested for incidents involving solicitation. One of the suspects was arrested for child enticement, using a computer device to facilitate a child sex crime and human trafficking.

In addition, a human trafficking victim was located and safely recovered.

This operation was conducted as a follow-up to a recent nationwide enforcement campaign named “Operation Cross Country.”

Those who have any information regarding human trafficking can call 920-448-3200 to speak to a detective or detective supervisor. Those who wish to remain anonymous can contact the Green Bay Area Crime Stoppers at 920-432-7867, through their website at www.432stop.com, or by downloading the P3 app through Google play or App store.
