Over the last two years, Veterans For Child Rescue has made incredible strides in establishing new service partnerships and increasing our operational capability. We have quickly built an agile and effective organization that is lead by our SEAL Team Six (DEVGRU) Founder Craig Sawyer. Much of the work we do deals with fighting back access to our children by child sex predators through coordinated undercover sting operations, cyber investigations and most recently the addition of educational and prevention services.

V4CR Successful Trafficking Recovery

MISSION BRIEF · APR 13, 2018

On Easter Sunday we were called upon to serve in a new capacity. God delivered our first trafficking victim survivor.

In 2017 during the filming of our upcoming documentary film, our VIPR team members were involved with an operation to locate and affect the extraction of a vulnerable teenager that was being trafficked for sex; being physically abused and trapped in an unthinkable situation that she could not escape. Her mother was beside herself but did not stop searching for her daughter. It’s a known fact that after several months missing in cases like this that the chances of locating and extracting a someone greatly diminishes.

Nevertheless V4CR mobilized and conducted a series of extensive investigations. We followed a number of leads from confidential informants, and conducted surveillance operations in a coordinated attempt to locate the girl. Ultimately we were unable to locate her during the operation; but we never gave up on her. We stayed in contact with her mother and a number of contacts known to be close to her, and finally in December of 2017 we received a verified confirmation that she was still alive and had been been relocated by her trafficker.

On April 1st, 2018 a break in the case occurred when the girl escaped her captors. A member of our team in the area was immediately dispatched to help support her escape.

BREAKING: FOSTA ONLINE ANTI SEX TRAFFICKING BILL SIGNED BY PRESIDENT TRUMP

We are pleased to share that sex crime advocates, law enforcement and NGOs have prevailed and scored a major victory in the fight to end the exploitation of children with the passage of the Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act (FOSTA). President Donald Trump signed the bill on April 11, 2018,  co-authored by Ohio Republican Sen. Rob Portman that establishes fines and prison terms for operators of websites that knowingly engage in online sex trafficking. This bill was aimed at services that sites such as Backpage, Reddit, Craigslist and hundreds of smaller sites offered users that often contributed to sex crimes. Veterans For Child Rescue and the elite VIPR Teams have operated sting operations in coordination with law enforcement agencies around the country using these sites and apps. Among the most prolific sites for catching online child predators for law enforcement and NGOs was Backpage.

Addressing the victims present at the ceremony, Trump said, “I’m signing this bill in your honor … You have endured what no person on earth should have to endure and we are going to do everything in our power to make sure that traffickers are brought to a swift and firm justice.”

The New York Post (4/11, Fonrouge) reports that Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act (or FOSTA) “paves the way for law enforcement to crack down on websites that facilitate sex trafficking, such as Backpage, Craigslist and other platforms where victims of human trafficking are bought and sold.” The Post adds that “previously, websites were protected by the Communications Decency Act, which shielded them from being held responsible for the content other users may post to their domain.”
