The Cold Lake RCMP are working on an Escort Harm Reduction Initiative.
In the evening of Wednesday, January 20th, the RCMP’s KARE ProActive Unit, with Metis Child and Family Services (Edmonton), as well as Cold Lake Victim Services, and Cold Lake RCMP started interventions with persons involved in sex trade in Cold Lake.
Investigators identified potential victims of human trafficking through a review of online escort services. Meetings were set with potential victims where investigators presented themselves as police and interviewed the potential victims to ascertain if they are being exploited or at risk.
If you are or know of any being exploited in the sex trade industry in the Cold Lake area, contact Cold Lake RCMP at 780-594-3302 or Crime Stoppers 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
