Numerous human trafficking reports have surfaced since illegal children began to arrive at Fort Sill in June, though the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics is currently focused on the rest of Oklahoma.
“We are not out at Fort Sill,” said OBN Director Darrell Weaver. “I know there are some inquiries being made and we have had some correspondence with some folks out there. At this point those children are federal custody. Obviously the Bureau of Narcotics, if we can assist in any way, we will. And we have made that known.”
In the meantime, OBN has been making stops across the state to provide Oklahomans with information about human trafficking.
The next stop is Tulsa. OBN will hold a Human Trafficking Awareness Program at the OSU-Tulsa Campus on July 24 at 7:00 p.m. to provide information about the forms of human trafficking, signs and symptoms of human trafficking and resources that are available.
Anyone interested in attending the event can RSVP here.
