Oakland County Officials join Michigan State Attorney General Bill Schuette in the Fight Against Human Trafficking

On Thursday, February 6, 2014, beginning at 9:30 a.m., in the Oakland County Board of Commissioners Auditorium, located at 1200 North Telegraph Road in Pontiac Michigan, Oakland County Commissioners Shelley Goodman Taub and Janet Jackson, along with members of the Board will welcome Michigan State Attorney General Bill Schuette to speak on the issue of Human Trafficking.

In March 2013, Attorney General Bill Schuette collaborated with the state legislature to create the Michigan Commission on Human Trafficking with the goals of assessing the threat human trafficking poses to Michigan residents and developing policy recommendations to promote its exposure and prevention. He has worked to create a victim-centered approach to initiative with all stakeholders impacted by this crime.

Also participating will be Oakland County Sheriff’s Lieutenant Wendy Reyes, who will give a more local and countywide perspective on the issue.

“For some time, County Commissioners have been looking at ways to address the issue of human trafficking and exploitation of children by issuing resolutions and coordinating outreach initiatives. I am glad that we have a partner with Attorney General Schuette,” stated Oakland County Commissioner Shelley Goodman Taub.

Commissioners Taub and Jackson will present a resolution before the full Board of Commissioners and is planning a special fall community seminar on the issue.
