LAWTON, Okla (KSWO) – The Red Cross hopes to educate the public about human trafficking in the month of sexual assault warning.
The first event is for parents and caregivers who want to learn more about protecting their children from online predators and the apps they can use to keep their children safe.
A London police officer will also talk about trends in the city and schools.
Red Cord President Ahsha Morin said it was a major human trafficking course 101 that covered topics such as reporting cybercrime and security.
“Ultimately, the person who keeps your child safe online is the parent, and that’s why we do it,” Morin said. “It’s really about educating parents, because keeping all this online stuff is actually a full-time job.”
This will take place from 10:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., April 23 at the Life Readiness Center in London.
You need to register by going to www.theredcord.org/events.
Morin said with the increase in human trafficking, it is now more important than who your children talk to.
“Every state is growing and we’ve all seen that,” Morin said. “We’ve all seen that in the news reports that happened in Oklahoma, and so we need to have more information and be aware of what human trafficking is and what it’s not.”
Then, at 7:00 p.m. on April 25 at the University of Cameron, the organization will work with experts Dan Nash and Alison Phillips to provide community members with information on human trafficking indicators.
And on April 26 and 27, they will offer training only for law enforcement officers.
