Law enforcement officials call Imperial Valley a hot spot for human trafficking

The founder of an international law-enforcement organization that focuses on rescuing victims of human trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation of children was the featured speaker at the Second Annual Summit on Human Trafficking in Imperial Valley.

Tim Ballard,  the founder of Operation Underground Railroad, said the area is a hot spot for the crime due to it being a border region. Several law enforcement agencies and social organizations came together on Wednesday at El Centro's Social Services building to discuss ways on how to fight this crime.
