Traffick911

www.traffick911.com

Traffick911, which prevents, rescues and restores victims of domestic minor sex trafficking, was named the 2013 Outstanding Organization of the Year by the Fort Worth Commission for Women with commendations by the Fort Worth City Council, mayor and State Senator Wendy Davis. We also have been recognized by Homeland Security as a most-valued partner in this battle to save our American children from sexual slavery.
Traffick911 has identified or rescued multiple victims of this horrific crime and our work has led to multiple felony arrests.

Traffick911's interactive Traps of a Trafficker equips youth and parents to avoid the tricks, traps and lures of traffickers. Traffick911 also speaks to civic and religious groups and in other venues to raise awareness of American children being forced into modern-day slavery.
In addition, Traffick911 has trained thousands of first responders across the country, including Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport Police, DPS, local law enforcement, educators, medical personnel, juvenile justice staffs at the county and state level, CPS regional supervisors and caseworkers, DAs, etc. Not only do we receive the highest evaluations, we have documented identifications and rescues out of our trainings.

Judge Jeffrey Rosenfield

Dallas County Criminal Court of Appeals #2
jeff@judgerosenfield.com

Judge Jeffrey Rosenfield has been Judge of Dallas County Criminal Court of Appeals #2 since 1-1-07. The Court hears Class "A" and Class "B" misdemeanors despite the title of the court. In an attempt to come up with a creative alternative sentencing program for defendants that are not good candidates for probation, Judge Rosenfield refined and utilizes an older program called the "Road and Bridge Program". It is an effective work detail program. Come hear how Judge Rosenfield has instituted this very effective punishment program.
