INTERCEPT TASK FORCE
OPERATION LIGHT SHINE CREATED THE INTERCEPT TASK FORCE TO SUPPORT DOMESTIC EFFORTS IN THE FIGHT AGAINST HUMAN TRAFFICKING AND CHILD EXPLOITATION.
Operation Light Shine created the Inter-agency Child Exploitation And Persons Trafficking Task Force (INTERCEPT) to provide the resources, staffing, and support required to identify and rescue child victims, apprehend their offenders, and reduce the risk through public education and awareness. The state-of-the-art facilities will bring together law enforcement, NGOs, prosecutors, victim services, and medical professionals in a multi-disciplinary approach to fight the exploitation and trafficking of children. The INTERCEPT Task Force is a world-class, first-of-its-kind workspace providing all resources required to conduct investigations, plan and run operations, identify and rescue victims, educate parents and youth, process and analyze seized data, and serve its community.
