MAKING AN IMPACT
“Excellent instruction from both trainers. Well done and informative.” –Maine CVEU Officer
“I have a better understanding about trafficking and am able to distinguish between the abuser and the abused.” –Mississippi DOT Officer
“This was very enlightening and informative. So often, officers get so focused on finding drugs that they overlook indicators of other criminal activity like trafficking. Every trooper in the MSHP needs this. Great job teaching!” –Missouri Highway Patrol Officer
“Excellent training…actually, this is the best training I have been to since starting this position!” -IL State Police
“One of the most courageous and educational presentations I have ever experienced in my life. I have an entirely different perspective and insight into the sex industry, abuse and trafficking.” -IL State Police
“It has made me realize I have been missing some clues.” -TN Hwy Patrol
“Kylla was a very dynamic speaker. She kept me totally engaged as well as constantly leaving my mouth wide open.” -IL State Police
“Looking back I think I may have encountered at least one situation like this on a traffic stop, and I believe this training just improved my chances of not missing one again, I pray.” –Oregon SP trooper
“This training is highly valuable. I would like to recommend that this training become part of Oregon’s Commercial Vehicle Inspection training/certification.” –OR DOT officer
“One of my officers recently recovered a 16 year-old female from a suspect that had been trafficking her for two weeks. The indicators and responses from both the pimp and victim were exactly like you teach. Our officer did a great job investigating the case which was eventually handed over to the local human trafficking task force. I was told they connected the suspect to other victims. Bottom line – what you guys are doing is making a difference!” -Captain Duryee CHP
