Police: Citizens Can Now Anonymously Report Human Trafficking Section on Website

The community can now easily and anonymously report suspected sex trafficking to police.

The Oakland Police Department is committed to combating sex trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation. On Friday June 27, 2014 the Oakland Police Department launched a new Human Trafficking section on the Department’s website.

(http://www2.oaklandnet.com/Government/o/OPD/s/HumanTrafficking/index.htm).

This section will display booking photos of individuals arrested and charged with soliciting prostitution and profiting from prostitution. The information and photos are intended to keep our community informed about the people who have been arrested and charged for prostitution related offenses.  The arrestee’s name, date of birth, city of residence and date of arrest will be posted along with their booking photo. The photos and information will be updated twice a month.

We are dedicated to identifying and rescuing victims of trafficking and locating and arresting perpetrators of this crime. We work closely with the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office to hold the perpetrators of these serious crimes accountable and with victim advocacy groups to provide support to the victims. 

The community plays an important role in combating trafficking. An informed community is an empowered and safer community.
