WHAT: Orange County law enforcement, transportation officials and the Orange County Human Trafficking Task Force (OCHTTF) will hold a joint news conference to discuss the state of human trafficking in Orange County. OCHTTF, which was founded and is administrated by the nonprofit organization Community Service Programs, will release its 2015 Human Trafficking Victim Report.

The report presents stories of human trafficking victims. In their own words, survivors of sex and labor trafficking define what they want law enforcement and service organizations to understand.

The report also documents the successful evolution of the OCHTTF into a fully operational multijurisdictional task force. This entity has the coordinated structure and systems in place to better identify, investigate, prosecute and provide services to human trafficking survivors.

Also as a means of better providing services to victims, OCHTTF will introduce a faith-based council. Its purpose is to engage religious leaders to work in collaboration with the task force and help support the simple, everyday needs of survivors of human trafficking.


  • Anaheim Police Department Chief of Police, Raul Quezada.
  • Program Director of Community Service Programs, Victim Assistance Programs, Lita Mercado
  • District Attorney, Tony Rackauckas

WHEN: 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday, August 19, 2015
