City leaders call on the community to help put a stop to human trafficking in Shawnee County

Local News

City leaders are calling on the community to help put an end to human trafficking in Shawnee County.

The Topeka Police Department will be hosting education sessions in collaboration with the organization Freedom Now USA, that will open to the public starting next month.

Topeka Police Chief Bill Cochran said this is just one of many ways for people to get involved.

“There’s a role for everybody to play,” said Cochran. “If you have a passion, and you want to help people and you have something to bring to the table, you can get a hold of the Center for Empowerment and Safety or you can get a hold of the Topeka Rescue Mission.”

The sessions will take place once a month at the Law Enforcemnet Center and will focus on general awareness as well as specialized topics.

Registration for the sessions will be available on the TPD website starting March 15.
